Sigh, yes, there’s a new edition of Math Literacy.   Sigh, yes, it still has the same editing standards for the computer part as the other one, which is to say:   lousy.   Problems that the right answer is marked wrong, and when you click on “show example” or “solution” it throws NaN errors (so the “answer”, […]

Okay, I thought I was done and then imagined sharing this with real people and had to add one more slide… but now This Link will get you to a slew of quotes and notes that I think provide evidence of the need for cognitively accessible math.  So… time for the “next steps” — which […]
