Math Problems: Why the Department of Education's Recommended Math Programs Don't Add Up.
Klein, David
American School Board Journal, v187 n4 p52-57 Apr 2000
The author and many illustrious co-signers sent an open letter to the U.S. Department of Education protesting a report designating 10 "exemplary" or "promising" math programs. The programs over-emphasize data analysis and statistics, de-emphasize arithmetic and algebra, and advocate early calculator use, which can undermine conceptual understanding. (MLH)
