The 1985 Mathematics Framework for California Public Schools was an early product of a national movement for school reform. It was a useful piece but offered little help in recommending specific curricular or instructional methods. This chapter traces the developments that led California reformers to their policy innovations. It focuses on the new math framework published by the state in 1992. The 1992 framework was a more significant resource for teachers since it provided more guidance for teachers who wanted to adopt new instructional methods. It also offered descriptions of desired student mathematical thinking and proposed ideas for mathematical units.
