How To Fix Our Math Education

On August 25, 2011, the New York Times printed an Op-Ed piece entitled “How To Fix Our Math Education”. The Times received almost 300 online comments on the article and it found its way onto many education blogs. Moreover, each of us has received hundreds of personal emails. We are impressed and humbled by the amount of passion and concern for the future of U.S. mathematics education. We have decided that this conversation needs to continue. As a consequence, we have opened a forum here on Math is More, devoted to this dialog. We invite you to share your ideas on how to best ‘fix’ mathematics education, especially in this time of widespread reform. Please join us by registering on the Math is More forum. We want to hear from you.

Sol Garfunkel and David Mumford
