The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics has challenged all mathematics teachers to use the Standards documents (1989, 1991, 1995, a 2000) as guidelines for teaching mathematics. Many pre-service programs are now presenting curricula that are based on the Standards (1989, 1991, 1995, a 2000). When mathematics teachers enter their own classroom, will their teaching methods reflect the guidelines of the Standards that they encountered in their pre-service education?In connection with administrators, inquiry-based teaching requires time for students to develop their own ideas, and teachers in this study felt the pressure to stay on track with their schoola#39;s pacing guide. This pressure was intensified because of the ... not attaining Adequate Yearly Progress. Additionally for Mr. Barry, the objectives of his curriculum were not in alignment of the guidelines of the Standards.
