This week I am continuing the series of questions related to the book
Everybody Counts. The material for today is from pages 43-54, Chapter 4.

1. What happens to children's natural curiosity and enthusiasm for
mathematics as they become socialized by school and society? Why?

2. Comment on the following statement: "Teachers teach only what is
in the textbook and students learn only what will be on the test."

3. What should be the principal goal of elementary school mathematics?
What should be the principal goal of secondary school mathematics?
