NEW JERSEY'S MATHEMATICS STANDARDS
The Mathematics Standards presented in this chapter offer a powerful challenge to all teachers, all schools, and all districts in New Jersey - to enable all of our students to step forward into the next century with the mathematical skills, understandings, and attitudes that they will need to be successful in their careers and daily lives.
The Mathematics Standards also offer a powerful tool to help us meet that challenge, providing a vision and standards which both inform us and rally us in our efforts.
It will not be easy to meet this challenge, nor can it happen overnight. But it can only happen if all of us together decide to make it happen. There are many obstacles, but we must not let our awareness of the obstacles become yet another obstacle. Let us work together to make the vision of New Jersey's Mathematics Standards a reality by the end of this century!
