Stockholm Declaration on Mathematics for the 21st century published by CCR

On the heels of its April 24-26, in Stockholm, Sweden, the Center for Curriculum Redesign is pleased to publish the “Stockholm Declaration” as a statement of intent.

The conference, attended by more than 100 participants from around the world and which included several members of the OECD/PISA Mathematics team, reaffirmed the need to deeply redesign Mathematics standards.  The aim is to better reflect relevance to Society and employability, via a deep rethinking of which branches and topics increasingly matter.

The CCR intends to run two more experts meetings before the end of 2013, after which it will publish its standards recommendations.
