Examination of Standards – MN

Measurement standards are combined with geometry standards.

NCTM vs. MN Standards

NCTM Standards are broad, encourage multiple solutions, and focus on concepts.

MN Standards are more specific, focus on “correct answers” and formulas as grade level increases.

Examination of Standards – Common Core

Which states have adopted Common Core?

NCTM endorses Common Core

Common Core more similar to NCTM than to MN standards

MN likely to adopt Common Core in future

Metric system vs. customary or English system

  • Neither is going away anytime soon – students need to learn both.
    • In 1866 Congress authorized the use of the metric system.
    • Congress passed the Metric Conversion Act of 1975“to coordinate and plan the increasing use of the metric system in the United States.”
