The NCTM High School Mathematics Task Force is charged with developing a document that:
- Identifies, describes, and documents the range of problems and challenges that are faced in ensuring that grades 9-12 mathematics works effectively for each and every student.
- Develops a set of overarching, specific, and implementable recommendations for addressing these problems and challenges.
- Provides specific options for implementing the recommendations and that serve as a framework for discussion by teachers, curriculum and professional developers, and administrators.
- Builds on the following foundational documents: The
Common Core State Standards for Mathematics,
Principles to Actions, and
Focus in High School Mathematics with reference to forward-looking documents that have implications for the high school curriculum, such as
A Common Vision for Undergraduate Mathematical Sciences Programs,
What Does it Mean to be College and Work Ready, the Dana Center’s
New Mathways Project,
Guidelines for Assessment and Instruction in Mathematics Modeling, and
Guidelines for Assessment and Instruction in Statistics Education.
