Subject: Additional information

I take issue with Joelís characterization of the Mathematically
Correct groupís web site as "in-depth synopsis." It is, in fact, a
distinctly political position statement, put out by a group that aims
to halt reform in mathematics teaching. A group of mathematicians with
a different view of reform is represented by the Mathematicians and
Education Reform Forum, http://www.math.uic.edu/MER/.

An in-depth analysis of middle grades mathematics textbooks is posted
at the American Association for the Advancement of Science site,
http://project2061.aaas.org/newsinfo/press/rl012299.htm. 

The National Science Foundation has funded several sites to
disseminate information about effective implementation of the
N.S.F.-funded curricula. These include:

The ARC Center (www.arccenter.comap.com), the K-12 Mathematics
Curriculum Center (www.edc.org/mcc) and the Show-Me Center
(http://showmecenter.missouri.edu).
