How our 1,000-year-old math curriculum cheats America’s kids

14 Mar

By hiding math’s great masterpieces from students’ view, we deny them the beauty of the subject.

s.note: ok, I’m very upset about math in schools even with all the good changes in ccss… I just cannot understand why kids have to wait for geometry until 9th grade when this is one of the oldest inquiries of humankind, why they have to write an essay for a math proof because they don’t learn any math logic and I’m not going any further… it’s 2014 already…

And indeed, Age Is Not the Problem
