New Thinking about College Mathematics: Implications for High School Teaching

Robin Marcus, Tim Fukawa-Connelly, Michael Conklin, James Fey 

December 2007, Volume 101, Issue 5, Page 354

Abstract:
Recommendations made by participants in a large project of the Mathematical Association of America (MAA), in which representatives of "partner disciplines" shared what they would like students to learn in the first two years of college mathematics. The article further suggests implications for high school mathematics and recommendations for curriculum changes, showing alignment with NCTM's Principles and Standards. The article includes specific priorities recommended for course content, and techniques to implement the new ideas in teaching.
