Behind the Headline
The Common Core Math Standards
Summer 2012 | Education Next

The New York Times editorial board yesterday weighed in on why American students hate math and how instruction needs to be changed.

Will the Common Core math standards fix the problems with math instruction in the U.S.? Ze’ev Wurman and Steve Wilson debate the quality of the new standards in a forum in the Summer 2012 issue of Ed Next.

Barry Garelick wrote about debates over math instruction in an earlier issue of Ed Next. He writes about Singapore Math here.

Dan Willingham picks apart the NYT editorial on his own blog in “What the NY Times Doesn’t Know About Math Instruction.”
