Real World Math

There is as great thread discussing "Real World Math" on Kitchen Table Math. If you are confused as to how "real world" activities can be detrimental, see the comments posted by Barry Garelick and subsequent discussion.

Welcome to the blogosphere -- here's my welcome post.

I saw your blogsite earlier, and am awed at that. Thank you for the encouragement. I hadn't tried to make a big "to-do" over the site yet because I was just trying to feel my way through this strange world. (It makes me feel like students must feel at times when math isn't clear to them.)

I recognize you from way back. I used to blog at KTM, under a different name then, but I always appreciated your incites. Please step in and help where I fail to make things clear. I remember how well you did that.
