Counterpoint: Why Should We Teach Arithmetic?
Stanic, George M. A.
Arithmetic Teacher, v31 n4 p2,20 Dec 1983
This response to Usiskin's editorial comment on calculator use in the May 1983 issue considers why arithmetic is taught. The belief that mathematics improves thinking and the humanist position that it is part of our cultural heritage are noted. The role of mathematics in the curriculum should be reconsidered. (MNS)
