Focus in High School Mathematics: Reasoning and Sense Making

Abstract

"Building on three decades of advocacy for Standards-based mathematics learning of the highest quality for all students, a new publication of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics recommends that all high school mathematics programs focus on reasoning and sense making. In recent years, a number of documents have provided detailed analyses of the topics that should be addressed in each course of high school mathematics. NCTM's Focus in High School Mathematics: Reasoning and Sense Making offers a different perspective, proposing curricular emphases and instructional approaches that make reasoning and sense making foundational to the content that is taught and learned in high school."
