At a session I did on Friday, I mentioned that if anyone was interested in links to bloggers speaking in support of our revised math curriculum, I’d pass them along. Rather than email them over and over again, I thought it would be more efficient if I catalogued them here.
These are the educators I know of who are speaking in support of our revised curriculum. If I’m missing any, please let me know and I’ll add them. If you don’t have a blog and would like to add something here, let me know and I can publish it as a guest post. I can even turn off commenting so mean people don’t insult you.
Update (March 18, 2014): A Petition For Educators to Speak Out In Support of Revised Curriculum
Update (September 7, 2014): A retired math professor (Ted Lewis) has started a blog to share some of his thoughts about this curriculum conversation in Alberta. It’s a great read for those looking for a mathematician’s perspective that is different from what we typically hear from mathematicians in the media.
