Dr. Alan M. Selby from St. Laurent, Quebec recently sent information
about a web site. At this time I am unable to log into the Web, so I can't
attest to interest, clarity, or appropriateness for the populations Dr. Selby
mentions.

He writes--
I am a mathematician who taught several years in colleges (the slightly
stressful, itinerant scholar route) before taking employment with an
electrical engineering firm. I left the post in March 1994, to continue
exploring and expressing ideas on and for education in math, reason and
science. The result was three books, completed in August 1994.

From the books, the educational web site
http://www.cam.org/~aselby/lesson.html
offers some original ideas on and for education in math, reason, and
critical thinking and for learning in general. Freshman college students,
high school students and their teachers could be directed to this site for
different but clear perspectives on (i) deductive reasoning and on (ii)
mathematics from arithmetic to calculus.
