## A History of Math Education

Saw this one on a professor's door:
The evolution of mathematics education
during the last 30 years.
1960's
A peasant sells a bag of potatoes for \$10. His costs amount to 4/5 of his
selling price. What is his profit?
1970's
A farmer sells a bag of potatoes for \$10. His costs amount to 4/5 of his
selling price, i.e. \$8. What is his profit?
1970's (New Math)
A farmer exchanges a set P of potatoes with a set M of money. The cardinality
of the set M is equal to \$10 and each element of M is worth \$1. Draw 10 big
dots representing the elements of M.
The set C of production costs is comprised of 2 big dots less than the set M.
Represent C as a subset of M and give the answer to the question: What is the
cardinality of the set of profits? (Draw everything in red).
1980's
A farmer sells a bag of potatoes for \$10. His production costs are \$8 and his
profit is \$2. Underline the word "potatoes" and discuss with your more...

## Four workers were discussing how

Four workers were discussing how smart their dogs were. The first was an engineer who said his dog could draw. His dogs name was "T-Square", and he told him to get some paper and draw a square, a circle and a triangle, which he did with no sweat. The accountant said he thought his dog, "Balance", could do better. He told him to fetch a dozen cookies and divide them into piles of three, which he did with no problem. The chemist said that was a very good stunt, but that his dog, "Apothecary", could do better yet. He told his dog to get a quart of milk and pour seven ounces into a ten ounce glass. Apothecary did this without a hitch. All three men agreed their dogs were equally smart. They turned to the Civil Servant and asked him what his dog could do. The Civil Servant called his dog, whose name was "Coffee break", and said, "Show the fellows what you can do, old buddy." Coffee Break then stroll ed over and ate the cookies, drank the more...

## God's share

Two priests and a rabbi were discussing what they do with the money they receive in the collection plate.
One priest says, "Well, I draw a line on the floor, throw all the money in the air and whatever lands north of the line, I give to God, the rest I keep."
The other priest says, "I do pretty much the same thing... I draw a circle, throw all the money in the air and whatever lands inside the circle, I give to God, and whatever lands outside, I keep."
The rabbi says, "Well, I do the same sort of thing too. I throw all the money up in the air and whatever God grabs, he gets!"
