Review:

"Unless we learn ways to transform the broad perceptions of math from a problem into an opportunity, we are in trouble. Here is a book that addresses the issue clearly--cogently." (Frank Newman, President, Education Commission of the States). "An invaluable array of 'front-line' perspectives on the kinds of quantitative skills students will need if they are to thrive in a rapidly changing society." (Ramon Cortines, Special Advisor to the Secretary, U.S. Department of Education). "Multiple perspectives augment an insightful exploration into the complex forces redefining the mathematical knowledge necessary for effective citizenship. This book is an indispensable resource for ex amining what could constitute productive participation in our democracy." -- Uri Treisman, Director, Charles A. Dana Center for Educational innovation
