links for Barry's Education Next articles

The links to Barry's Education Next articles have gone missing on Google, so here they are (I'll get them linked on the sidebar, too):

An A-maze-ing Approach to Math (2005 and now a classic--)

Miracle Math (about Singapore Math)

I'm giving both articles to folks here.

Great links!

We're still talking about the same things and still hearing the same arguments after all of these years. I wrote my first letter to the editor in 2001 where I warned parents about TERC. Deep down, the problem is that many educators really don't know what math is all about. They think that the math that leads to AP calculus is some other kind of math that has no bearing on K-6 math. Some kids make it to algebra in 8th grade, but they don't know why and they don't care. Worse, many K-6 educators claim that what they are doing is better.
