Popp, Jerome A. – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 1986

Proposes that the role of mathematics education be re-examined in terms of an increased emphasis on mathematical knowledge rather than attainment of calculational speed. Offers perspectives on the reform movement in mathematics education and advocates the teaching of the history, logic, and method of mathematical thinking. (ML)
