Mathematics Teaching, n225 p12-13 Nov 2011
The report, "A world class mathematics education for all our young people," commissioned by the Conservative Party in 2009, produced by a Task Force chaired by Carol Vorderman, was published in August 2011. The document makes some sensible recommendations, many of which will be welcomed by the mathematics education community. In this article, the author discusses the "Vorderman Report" and contends that the report is a little lacking in primary analysis.
