How Our 1,000-Year-Old Math Curriculum Cheats America's Kids

How Our 1,000-Year-Old Math Curriculum Cheats America's Kids | 21st Century Concepts Math | Scoop.it
"Most of us never get to see the real mathematics because our current math curriculum is more than 1,000 years old. For example, the formula for solutions of quadratic equations was in al-Khwarizmi's book published in 830, and Euclid laid the foundations of Euclidean geometry around 300 BC. If the same time warp were true in physics or biology, we wouldn't know about the solar system, the atom and DNA. This creates an extraordinary educational gap for our kids, schools and society. If we are to give students the right tools to navigate an increasingly math-driven world, we must teach them early on that mathematics is not just about numbers and how to solve equations but about concepts and ideas." | by Edward Frenkel
