Reconstructed Mathematics in the High School: The Adaptation of Instruction to the Needs, Interests, and Capacities of Students


by Henry C. Morrison 1914

Few are satisfied with the present mathematics situation in the high school, particularly in the first two years of the high school. Dissatisfaction is found in the college faculties which deal with the product, among the mathematicians who are looking for a foundation for productive scholarship, among the teachers who are looking for something better; and dissatisfaction coupled with ridicule is found among the business men, engineers, and others, who expect mathematics learned in the school to function in the practical affairs of life. The purpose of this paper is an attempt to analyze the situation, to find out what is the matter with mathematics in the high school, and if possible to throw some light on the way out.
