How Students Learn ... Math ...

"The National Research Council has released an extensive report on principles of learning in the areas of mathematics, science and history. " (NASSMC News Briefs, referring to Education Week, 12 January 2005 (p. 11)) The report may be read in its entirety on line: www.nap.edu/books/0309074339/html/ This is worth studying. I have scanned some of the early chapters and hope to have more comments later.
