Summary
"Public concern about how well U.S. school-children are learning mathematics is abundant and growing. Media reports of inadequate teaching, poorly designed curricula, and low test scores fuel the fear that young people are deficient in the mathematical skills demanded by society." "While such concerns are far from new, now more than ever, proficiency in mathematics is a necessity. Over the last half century, mathematics achievement has become entangled in urgent national and international issues such as the globalization of markets and the spread of information technologies. And while everyone spouts rhetoric about boosting the mathematical performance of America's students, what realistically needs to be done?" "Adding It Up addresses this question for school mathematics programs in pre-kindergarten through eighth grade. It also speaks to the concerns expressed by many Americans, from prominent politicians to the people next door, that too few students in our elementary and middle schools are successfully acquiring mathematical skills and knowledge."--BOOK JACKET
