[[[[Instead of all this babble just read your assignment !!! Do your
homework!!!]]]
[[[[[[Nowhere in the Background and Rationale does it discuss "social
decline" as
a reason for mathematical reform. ]]]]]]]


Alas...I thought the Standards preached different ways to approach learning
and that knowledge is not gained in just one way. I thought that reading the
200 page California Mathematics Framework with its quite detailed summary of
the Standards would have put me in good grace with those who hail the
standards. But I guess I'm just babbling......I mean, after all, what social
decline could I possibly be speaking of and how could I suggest that it might
possibly be a reason behind the reformist need to reform???

Perhaps there is no way to discuss this intelligently with you until you get
off your high horse? How naiive of you to think that I know NOTHING of the
standards!........

[[[[[[[[[[["The document describes what a high-quality mathematics education
for North
American students, K-12, should comprise. Central to the Curriculum and
Evaluation Standards is the development of mathmatical power for all
students. Mathematical power includes the ability to explore, conjecture,
and reason logically; to solve nonroutine problems; to communicate about
and through matematics; and to connect ideas within mathematics and between
mathematics and other intellectual activity. Mathematical power also
involves the development of personal self-confidence and a disposition to
seek, evaluate, and use quantitative and spatial information in solving
problems and in making decision. Students' flexibility, perserverance,
interest, curiosity and inventiveness also affect the realization of
mathematical power."]]]]]]]]

Funny........the document I cited (California Math Framework) describes the
exact same thing!
