- Background
- Ideas for Transforming Mathematics Teaching and Learning
- All students can and must learn mathematics, which should serve as a "pump," not a "filter."
- Teachers need to listen to students and to incorporate into their instruction what they learn from listening.
- Students learn mathematics best when they construct their own mathematical understanding.
- Students need to learn more and different types of mathematics.
- Mathematical discussion should be a daily part of classroom activity.
- Teachers need to become "informed guides" to the learner.
- Calculators, computers, and related technology can be effective tools in the teaching and learning of mathematics.
- Students need shared learning experiences.
- Curricular and pedagogical change in mathematics cannot occur without accompanying change in student assessment.
- Lasting change takes broad support.
