NCTM STANDARDS BASED CASE STUDIES AVAILABLE ON LINE
National Council of Teacher of Mathematics (NCTM) standards-based case studies are now available on the Internet (www.nctm.org/case-studies). Schools profiled include Crosby High School, Waterbury, CT, Brookwood High School, Snellville, GA, Portland Middle School, Portland, MI, Thomas Jefferson Middle School, Jefferson, MO, and Helena High School, Helena, MT. In addition, visit the NCTM on-line Standards 2000 Forum (www.nctm.org/standards2000/) to learn about the latest developments in NCTM's revision of the Standards.
The central message of the current Standards will be reaffirmed while new teaching and curricular challenges for the coming years will be addressed. It will be designed to cover four new grade bands: Pre K-2, 3-5, 6-8, and 9-12. A draft is expected to be released in the fall of 1998 with the final version available in the year 2000. NCTM currently holds "discussion groups" at each NCTM regional conference to discuss the future of the Standards.
