Why the Math Curriculum Makes No Sense

We finally start – motivated by – this article, our so long waited EDU Posts Series…

Math with Bad Drawings

What would you do, if you were designing high school math from scratch?

Well… probably not what we do now.

What in Noether’s name is going on here?

Why do we teach so many obscure technicalities, and so few practical facts?

Who the heck designed this monstrosity?

Nobody Designed Mathematics Education

I’ve come to believe that even this simple question—“who designed this?”—rests on a flawed assumption. The broad thing we call “the math curriculum” isn’t really “designed.” Rather, like all educational institutions and systems, it is shaped by a hailstorm of competing forces:

Over time, each of these parties tugs and prods at the curriculum, reshaping it to suit their needs. No single author writes the curriculum. Nor, even, do multiple authors reach a clear and coherent compromise. Instead, the curriculum is perpetually being nudged and tweaked, eroded and built up, by various actors who share no unified vision.

Merry Christmas!!… Feliz Navidad!!… Frohe Weihnachten!!…

Oh!!… My cherished math friends!!… On this X – MATHS season, I will let myself to be inspired by these wonderful thoughts to express mine:
“God used beautiful mathematics in creating the world!
Paul Dirac
… Accordingly – as a living part of this creation – we should Always act … Beautifully! With each other and with our unique world …
“Mathematics knows no races or geographic boundaries; for mathematics, the cultural world is one country”
David Hilbert
… Accordingly – as conscious beings – we should Always act … Respectfully! Among Everyone and with Everything …

“In mathematics the art of proposing a question must be held of higher value than solving it” – Georg Cantor

… Accordingly – as math lovers – we should Start Asking todays highest question!

PEACE …

WE ARE ONE … That´s the first math to learn!!… 2N-Joy!!…
