I’m increasingly conscious of the gap between the urgent calls for more effective math education in the U.S., and the seemingly low expectations some parents have for their own child to advance in math. It’s as if the pressing national need has nothing to do with us on a personal level. I hear parents talk about their child’s math performance, and say things like “I was never good in math either.” Or regarding newer ways of teaching math, I’ve heard “I don’t like the ‘new math’ because I wasn’t taught that way.”

As I read the economic headlines today and the news about AIG’s bailout, I can’t help think about how much math is being done right now all over Washington, Wall Street, and the world. Serious folks are attempting to calculate the impact of this financial melee across instruments, sectors, and countries. Some of the math is easy, more is fuzzy, and even more is mind-numbing in its complexity.
