Connecting Research to Teaching: Addressing the Equity Principle in the Mathematics Classroom

View More View Less

The publication of Curriculum and Evaluation Standards (NCTM 1989) marked the beginning of a period of significant change in mathematics education. However, that document and many contemporaneous calls for reform lacked a clear focus on equity (Meyer 1989). A decade later, Principles and Standards for School Mathematics (NCTM 2000) began to address that shortcoming.
