Administrator's Guide: Interpreting the Common Core State Standards to Improve Mathematics Education
By Matthew Larson
Nearly a decade ago, NCTM published Administrator's Guide: How to Support and Improve Mathematics Education in Your School. This updated Administrator's Guide now positions school and district leaders to make sense of the past decade's many recommendations, with special emphasis on the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics.
Focusing on similarities between these new standards and those outlined in NCTM's influential Principles and Standards for School Mathematics, this handbook efficiently highlights reasoning processes that are essential in any high-quality mathematics program. Students who know these processes are set to "do math" in any context, real or abstract.
Research indicates that many individuals within a school can and do contribute to the work of leading and managing a school. This guide can support anyone who is working to improve mathematics education—either alone or with others.
Make the most of the rare opportunity that the Common Core State Standards offer for rethinking school mathematics and creating exciting new pathways from high school to college and beyond.
Includes answers to "Frequently Asked Questions" and detailed lists of resources to support school mathematics programs.
