[[[[[[[[I have several summaries of the standards. However, I wouldn't
begin to discuss such without the complete edition. In fact,
the Professional Standards and Assessment Standards are part of
the package.

Summaries in the Appendices of other works do not include the
introductions and details. It's sort of like reading the
Classic Comic Book's version of a classic.]]]]]]]]]

Have you read the 1992 Mathematics Framework for California Public Schools
(Standards nicely summarized in pages 207-215) which was published by the
California Department of Education and adopted by the California State Board
of Education? I believe this document to be quite a good introduction and
summary of the Standards with quite a bit of detail given in the 200+ pages.

Generally speaking I agree with you that one can certainly come from a
stronger perspective having read the entire document....however, I can do an
adequate job discussing the Simpson trial or the human rights abuses in China
by just reading good clear summaries in newspaper and magazine articles.
Likewise, I believe (having read the Framework document with Standards
summary) that I am qualified to at least comment on what I have learned
knowing that people on the list, who have read the enire Standards document,
will correct me when I err.

Take Care...Harv Becker
(P.S. Just a thought....but if you haven't read the 1992 California
Frameworks mentioned above and are unfamiliar with its contents
then..........aren't you also guilty of discussing something with me that you
haven't read?) :-)

(P.S.S. If you have read the Frameworks....please disregard the P.S.!!)
