Press Release: September 22, 2009

Join us for this free, live webcast--How to Save Math Education (And a Tiny Piece of the World Along With It)

For everything it does well, the US model of math education conditions students to anticipate narrowly defined problems with narrowly prescribed solutions. This puts them in no place to anticipate the ambiguous, broadly defined, problems they'll need to solve after graduation, as citizens. This webcast will define two contributing factors to this intellectual impatience and then suggest a solution.

Attendance is limited, so register now. We'll send you a reminder before the webcast. And please feel free to share this invitation with others.

Date: Tuesday, October 1
Time: 10am PT, San Francisco
Presented by: Dan Meyer, Cable in the Classroom's Leader in Learning receipient
Price: Free
