Q. What's a "A Framework for K-12 Science Education" got to do with
Math Education"

A. If adopted the Framework could affect the way math is taught in K-12.

Ludwik Kowalski (2011) of the Phys-L list, in a post titled "Sharing
a link," wrote (in its entirety):

" <http://the-scientist.com/2011/08/03/science-education-shift/> "

In the language of "PEdants for Definitive Academic References which
Recognize the Invention of the Internet (PEDARRII)" this becomes:

"Science Education Shift: A new educational framework swaps breadth
of scientific disciplines for depth and emphasizes the process of
science" [Scudellari (2011) - scroll down to "REFERENCES" below].

For a brief introduction to "A Framework for K-12 Science Education"
see "New from the National Academies: 'A Framework for K-12 Science
Education' " [Hake (2011)].
