Creator: Schoenfeld, Alan H.
Publisher: University of California, Berkeley. School of Education
Description: In this article, Alan Schoenfeld presents his insightful commentary on a “productive, middle-ground” theory in opposition to the extremist views of the math wars. Schoenfeld reviews the history of Mathematics education in the U.S. and how economic and political difficulties affected the education of America’s youth. He details the “reform” of mathematics from standards-based to new math, and the downfall of that reform. It is a smart, interesting article that offers a tangible solution to a problem that has been looming in American school systems since the days of Sputnik.
