Topic: New Mathematics or New Math

New Mathematics or New Math was a brief, dramatic change in the way mathematics was taught in American grade schools, and to a lesser extent in European countries, during the 1960s. The name is commonly given to a set of teaching practices introduced in the U.S. shortly after the Sputnik crisis in order to boost science education and mathematical skill in the population so that the intellectual threat of Soviet engineers, reputedly highly skilled mathematicians, could be met.

Re: New Mathematics or New Math

A Brief History of American K-12 Mathematics Education
in the 20th Century

by David Klein

In January 1998, when U.S. Education Secretary Richard Riley called for an end to the "math wars" in a speech before a joint meeting of the American Mathematical Society and the Mathematical Association of America, he could not have known that within two years, the department he directed would become the focus of the very math wars he sought to quell.

The immediate cause of the math wars of the 90s was the introduction and widespread distribution of new math textbooks with radically diminished content, and a dearth of basic skills. This led to organized parental rebellions and criticisms of the new math curricula by mathematicians and other professionals.

Re: New Mathematics or New Math

Work in Progress, Concerning the History of the so-called New Math, of the Period 1952-1975 Approximately

Here is a list of titles, whose number should increase with time, of relevant papers, chapters, and drafts, which just might some day converge upon a Book.
