Trouble with Math

The Sound of Ideas

If we asked you to find X, you'd probably think that's an easy one: It's right after W and just before Y. You'd fail math with an answer like that, but you'd hardly be alone. It appears many Americans can't find X in an algebraic equation. A Harvard study says the U.S. lags dozens of other countries in math. Why do we struggle so much? And what are educators here doing to change the trend? Tuesday morning at 9:00 on 90.3.
