North Carolina High School Mathematics Standards: Policy Updates and Initiatives to Support
Abstract: In this talk, we will discuss the new North Carolina state mathematics standards for the fourth high school mathematics courses and what that will mean in terms of the mathematical backgrounds students will be bringing into college mathematics courses. We will also discuss current initiatives to support mathematics teachers in teaching the new standards across the state and implications the standards have for pre-service teacher education.
