Resource Title National Council of Teachers of Mathematics Standards and Focal Points

This website of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) provides access to curriculum focal points for mathematics in prekindergarten through grade 8. The focal points serve as major instructional goals and desirable learning expectations to help students build mathematical competency. The intent is that students will learn the most significant mathematical concepts and skills in the context of a focused and cohesive curriculum that implements problem solving, reasoning, and critical thinking. As a cross-reference, links to related expectations from NCTM’s principles and standards are provided for each of the grade-level focal points. The website also provides access to earlier NCTM documents, including those related to principles, standards, assessment, and evaluation.
