Integrated Math: An Inconvenient Truth
Parents and educators from Washington state's Where's the Math? have produced a wonderful 15-minute video that shows why many parents and math educators believe that integrated math curricula like Chicago Math/Everyday Mathematics is a fundamentally flawed curriculum, in spite of what you might be hearing from your child's teacher or district curriculum and instruction people. The video is hosted by Seattle TV meteorologist M. J. McDermott.
If your eyes glaze over at the discussions of integrated math on this blog or elsewhere, check out the video. McDermott gives the whiteboard talk with examples that you might find yourself wishing someone had presented at your school's curriculum night.
