By Veronica Nett WINFIELD - Elementary school students in Putnam County are learning the "fuzzy logic concepts" in mathematics before the basics, a parent complained to the county board of education Monday evening. Skip Little said the investigation method used by county elementary schools to teach mathematics is ineffective. "They're learning the tools before the numbers," Little said. Elementary school is not the place for students to learn complex concepts and problems, Little...

By JANESE HEAVIN Amy Surdin uses math every day in her accounting job to balance payroll and help restaurants do sales tax returns. But even with her hands-on skills, she couldn't help her sixth- grade son with his school homework. "I cannot understand why they can't do long multiplication or division to get answers," she said.

By Natalie Angier You are shopping in a busy supermarket and you're ready to pay up and go home. You perform a quick visual sweep of the checkout options and immediately start ramming your cart through traffic toward an appealingly unpeopled line halfway across the store. As you wait in line and start reading nutrition labels, you can't help but calculate that the 529 calories contained in a single slice of your Key lime cheesecake amounts to one-fourth of your recommended daily caloric...

By JANESE HEAVIN A document outlining what students should be learning in Columbia's elementary math classes is headed to the Board of Education this week, but some are urging members to delay approving those objectives. "I'm concerned they're rushing this through," parent Michelle Pruitt said. "Why not wait a month or three weeks until the October board meeting?" The "learning objectives" is a list of skills students should master at each grade level, including what students should be...

By JANESE HEAVIN Columbia Public Schools' chief academic officer said the district is ready to compromise with the community when it comes to elementary math. But Sally Beth Lyon, who oversees district curricula, stopped short of saying concepts-based math would be replaced by a more traditional program. "We're going to figure out how to get something done so we can all move forward," she told the Tribune. "We're still at the table and will discuss the best way to move forward and include...

By LIBBY QUAID WASHINGTON -- Sixteen years after Barbie dolls declared, "Math class is tough!", girls are proving that when it comes to math they are just as tough as boys. In the largest study of its kind, girls measured up to boys in every grade, from second through 11th. The research was released Thursday in the journal Science. Parents and teachers persist in thinking that boys are simply better at math, said Janet Hyde, the University of Wisconsin- Madison researcher who led...

By Lori Higgins, Detroit Free Press Jul. 28--The math teacher walked back and forth in the middle of the U-shaped group of tables, often leaning down to talk to students who needed help or sending students to the front of the room to demonstrate their work for others. "Fractions are one of the most important parts of math that can help you do well in middle school and high school," Deborah Loewenberg Ball told the two dozen students seated before her as they embarked on a lesson about...

From wire reports The notion that boys are better at math simply doesn't add up, according to a study to be published today in the journal Science. An analysis of standardized test scores from more than 7.2 million U.S. students in grades two through 11 found no difference in math scores for girls and boys, contradicting a pervasive belief that most females aren't hard-wired for careers in science and technology. The study also undermined the assumption - espoused by former Harvard...
