NCTM Process and Content Standards Brochure

NO NEED TO PROVIDE BROCHURE JUST THE INFORMATION IS NEEDED!

You have been asked by your district to present the NCTM process and content standards for a professional development workshop. You want to highlight the importance of NCTM process standards in the 21st-century mathematics classroom. You also must highlight each NCTM content standards and must explain how these standards can be integrated into many subject areas.

Provide information need to create a brochure highlighting the following points:

o Identify the NCTM process standards.

o Reflect on how these standards change mathematics instruction in the 21st-century classroom.

o Identify the NCTM content standards.

o Provide examples of how these standards can be integrated into various subject areas.

o Explain why these standards are important in the mathematics classroom today
