* 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. *
You should also be aware that the writers of the California Framework are of the opinion that the Standards are actually conservative. Have you ever heard any of our illustrious leaders from the Calif. Dept. of Ed. talk about their vision of school mathematics - that is really scary. I would be very careful about accepting their summary of any reform document.
