It incorporates a clear set of principles and a sharper focus on how students' kwledge grows as shown by recent research. It also includes ways to incorporate the use of techlogy to make mathematics instruction relevant and effective in a techlogical world.The accompanying CD offers a searchable hypertext edition of Principles and Standards, which includes the full text of the printed volume along with interactive maths tools that support the vision of the Standards. The CD also contains a version of the Illuminations website, which includes hundreds of lessons, interactive tools and reviewed web sites that support Principles and Standards and the three previous Standards documents.
