Another attempt at math education
By Murray Bourne, 05 Jul 2006
His method is Web-based and uses artificial intelligence to move the student through the learning. Some things that caught my eye:
- "Learning how to think and reason". Great - too much of mathematics is 'Which formula do I plug it in to?'
- "Failure is not an option". It is a mastery-based system which I think is important. Too many students are moved to the next grade but they are certainly not ready - and this sets up problems later.
- "Learning is hard work". Hmmmm
Do any of you use it? Is it good?
