*Discrete Mathematics in the new NCTM Standards*

The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics recently
released its new "Principles and Standards for School Mathematics",
replacing the NCTM standards published in 1989. This presentation
will discuss how discrete mathematics is addressed in the new
standards, and its implications for our efforts to promote discrete
mathematics as a vehicle for improving mathematics education.
