Report Urges Changes in Teaching Math – New York Times

Hear hear! Math lessons should indeed focus on teaching math. I’m completely serious when I say it’s a big problem that we’re veering away such practices as teaching students things and having them practice those things and become better at them. Say whatever you want for art or science or whatever, but for math, a standards-based, goal-oriented structure really is the best way to go.

That’s what I think, anyway.
