Are California's Math Standards Up to the Challenge?
Cossey, Ruth
Phi Delta Kappan, v80 n6 p441-43 Feb 1999
The California Mathematics Standards are cynical, mind-numbing, and shallow. Instead of balancing problem solving, concept development, and skill acquisition, the standards are full of obsolete mathematics and devoid of problem solving. Students offering only an algorithm when asked for meaning have style without substance. Blind memorization is passe. (MLH)
