at least two sides to every issue, including the so-called "Math Wars."
- For too long, however,
the public has heard primarily from the side of the traditionalists. MathematicallySane.com
has been developed to balance the equation.
- For too long the
case for reform has been unfairly characterized as "Fuzzy Math."
MathematicallySane has been created to provide an alternative -- and more
accurate -- view of reform by making a compelling case that changes in
our nation's mathematics programs are imperative for our students' future
success and for the economic health of our nation.
- For too long there
has been an insidious -- and often unanswered -- campaign to return mathematics
instruction to the failed practices of the past. MathematicallySane has
been developed to provide a broad array of evidence that reform initiatives
have been successful and have raised student achievement in school districts
across the country.
MathematicallySane's mission is to advocate -- broadly and persuasively --
for the rational reform of school mathematics. We seek to:
- Help educators, citizens
and policy-makers at all levels make a stronger case for better mathematics
- Gather and disseminate
diverse success stories -- both anecdotal and data-based; and
- Provide a forum for
reform minded mathematics educators.

We hope that you find this site supportive of your efforts to make mathematics
work for ALL of America's students. Send us your ideas and your feedback at
