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,

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
