Mathematics in Secondary Schools

A consideration of mathematics in secondary schools might begin with three fundamental types of questions. The first type revolves around what to teach and includes such questions as, “In an age of calculating machines need children know multiplication tables? Should we teach manipulation in algebra? If so, how much? Are logarithms obsolete? Should we teach trigonometry at all? If so, why? What parts of recent mathematics ought to come into the school syllabus? What should go out to make room for new topics? More fundamental, what considerations should determine our choice of syllabus?”
