News from the Southern 2 Region
Ted H. Hull, Southern 2 Regional Director
Fall 2011

Welcome back to school. Fall is always an exciting time. Every year starts anew, with opportunities to make a difference for students. This fall, many states are working to incorporate the Common Core Mathematical Standards into their current state curriculum and assessment programs. I encourage you to pay careful attention to the Standards for Mathematical Practice. These Practices provide a rich opportunity, whether you are in a CCSS state or not, to carefully consider the teaching and learning cycle.

The Practices, combined with the NCTM process standards, point the way for what mathematics classrooms should be, and how students should learn mathematics. I know school budgets are tight, but I encourage you to find opportunities to stay up-to-date about your state's progress.

Good luck, and have a great year.
