[Note: I am sending this note to people on several lists I have, and to
avoid a long header list, I am sending it to myself and Bcc'ing it to these
people. Thank you for your understanding.]


National Council of Teacher of Mathematics (NCTM) standards-based case studies
are now available on the Internet ( 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 ( 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.
