GS Chandy says:
>To my mind, the single strongest reason supporting the argument that 'math teaching' requires reform is the incontrovertible fact that MOST students graduate from school 'fearing or loathing' math! I believe that the 'foundation' as it were, for most of this 'fear and loathing' is laid during the teaching of elementary math - and that it is extremely difficult - perhaps impossible - to overcome once it is there in the 'mental structure' of a student.

I think that's an interesting thesis to explore, but perhaps it deserves its own thread. No need to argue it solely the context of the Ma/Saul papers.


Cheers,
