National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) Principles and Standards

From NCTM (

"The vision for mathematics education described in Principles and Standards for School Mathematics is highly ambitious. Achieving it requires solid mathematics curricula, competent and knowledgeable teachers who can integrate instruction with assessment, education policies that enhance and support learning, classrooms with ready access to technology, and a commitment to both equity and excellence. The challenge is enormous and meeting it is essential. Our students deserve and need the best mathematics education possible, one that enables them to fulfill personal ambitions and career goals in an ever-changing world."

Other frameworks can be used to search for tasks in PALM, if they have been mapped to the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM). Contact us to discuss how you can index the science standards of your state, district, or program to the NCTM if you would like your teachers to be able to search for PALM tasks linked to your standards.
