The Mathematical Miseducation of America's Youth: Ignoring Research and Scientific Study in Education.
Battista, Michael T.
Phi Delta Kappan, v80 n6 p424-33 Feb 1999
Because traditional instruction ignores students' personal construction of mathematical meaning, mathematical thought development is not properly nurtured. Several issues must be addressed, including adults' ignorance of math- and student-learning processes, identification of math-education research specialists, the myth of coverage, testing problems, and theoretical dilutions and distortions.
