I sensed her discomfort and tried to tell her to just give me two quarters, but she hailed the manager for help. While he tried to explain the transaction to her, she stood there and cried.Why do I tell you this? Because of the evolution in teaching math since the 1950s:
    Teaching Math In 1950A logger sells a truckload of lumber for $100. His cost of production is 4/5 of the price. What is his profit?
    Teaching Math In 1960A logger sells a truckload of lumber for $100. His cost of production is 4/5 of the price, or $80. What is his profit?
    Teaching Math In 1970A logger sells a truckload of lumber for $100. His cost of production is $80. Did he make a profit?

    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...

    SAT score decayAs we all know SAT scores have been on the decline for years.The following may be the reason why.A math problem in the 60'sA logger sells a truckload of lumber for $100. His cost of production is four-fifths of this price. What is his profit? A math problem in the 70'sA logger sells a truckload of lumber for $100. His cost of porduction is four-fifths of this price, or $80. What is his profit? A math problem in the 70's using New MathA logger exchanges a set L of lumber for a set M of money. The cardinality of set M is 100, and each element is worth $1. Make 100 dots representing the elements of set M. The set C of the cost of production contains 20 fewer points than set M, and answer the following question: What is the cardinality of the set P of profits? A math problem in the 80'sA logger sells a truckload of wood for $100. His cost of production is $80, and his profit is $20. Your assignment: underline the number 20.A math problem in the 90's under Outcome Based more...
