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).
