In Defense of Traditional Math

In defense of traditional math: What is reform math, anyway?

Note from Laurie Rogers:When you explain the flaws of reform math and excessive constructivism to parents, they tend to see it right away. When you explain the flaws of reform math to proponents of reform, they tend to dismiss all concerns with some variation of, “You just don’t get it.”
This page is dedicated to informing parents and other community members about what reform math and constructivism are. If you’re wondering about America’s alarming and precipitous drop in math skills, if you’re struggling to find someone you can hire who has basic math skills, or if you are wondering why your child is getting straight As in honors math but can’t consistently subtract one number from another or divide a two-digit number by a one-digit number — this page is for you.
