Quantitative Thinking.
DuBridge, Lee A.
An appeal for more research to determine how to educate children as effectively as possible is made. Mathematics teachers can readily examine the educational problems of today in their classrooms since learning progress in mathematics can easily be measured and evaluated. Since mathematics teachers have learned to think in quantitative terms and make decisions based on logical thinking, they can provide the best quantitative thinking about our educational problems. There is a need for people who think quantitatively and objectively and apply their thinking to meet the needs of all people. Examples of problems related to such topics as space exploration, environmental pollution, and the cost of living are used to illustrate how mathematics teachers can explore these problems with their students in a quantitative and logical manner.
