Abstract

Preface: This article has been developed based on a personal discussion between the German author Günter Törner and Alan Schoenfeld, who is an expert in the field of mathematical didactics. Basically there are three reasons for us to share our insights with the public:

(1) Readers, having subscribed to Jerry Becker’s e-mail information network, have received numerous messages over the past few months; what do we need to know about this fact in Germany?

(2) Scholastic standards – a keyword that sounds very familiar to us in terms of educational policy… But it is also a hot topic in other countries. What can we conclude from these discussions?

(3) Scholastic standards – if they are developed, people will be eager to test their implementation. A very complex problem in the United States and maybe even in Germany!?
