Subject: Re: Philosophy for math curriculum

I share with you a copy of what we have written in our course book introduction under mathematics: "Mathematics has a long impressive record of contributions to discovery and problem solving in science and technology, decision-making in business and government, and creative expression in the arts. This record of achievement has earned mathematics a prominent place in school curricula. We live in a world where the emphasis has shifted the demands of mathematics to prepare technologically advanced students who can solve real-world problems and who can communicate those solutions. The Mississippi School for Mathematics and Science mathematics curriculum emphasizes exploring, investigating, reasoning, and communicating for all students." Hope this is food for thought -Claudia, for the Teacher2Teacher service
