Welcome to the Web-based discussion group for Standards 2000, NCTM's project to update, clarify, and synthesize the previous volumes of Standards. This discussion group is co-hosted by the Math Forum and the Standards 2000 Project.
GOALS ===== The goals for this forum are simple: * To stimulate discussion and reflection about the directions to be taken in updating the NCTM Standards. * To provide feedback to the Standards 2000 project about the current thinking and advice of persons interested in the NCTM Standards.
The Standards 2000 draft will become a central focus of discussion when it is released in October 1998. In the meantime, a series of questions posed by the Writers will be posted as beginning points for discussion.
GROUND RULES ============ The ground rules are simple: * Anyone can participate. * Messages should focus on issues relevant to the goals of the forum. * Be polite. Focus on issues rather than personalities.
This list is monitored, and the right to "prune" unproductive branches of discussion is reserved. If your primary goal is to pick fights or advance a personal agenda, you are welcomed to do so elsewhere.
