>I am a concerned math parent in New Jersey

>Hi, my name is Amy Flax. I am a concerned math parent in New Jersey. Our local curriculums are driven by our state standards. Our current state math standards are currently being reviewed. This is our opportunity to make a difference. I believe that we need world class state math standards which in turn will drive the implementation of world class curriculums. A friend of mine received a copy of the state standards from the NJDOE and it is public. Input is welcome. I would like you to take the opportunity to comment. I would like to tell you that the language still looks very “fuzzy” with words like “Explore” and does not mention the Standard Algorithm.

If you are interested in commenting, please email me at, and I will send you the draft standards. Please send your comments back to me.
