##### Fuzzy Math
The Essential Guide to the Bush Tax Plan Wielding his widely recognized powers of explanation, Paul Krugman lays bare the hidden facts behind the \$2 trillion tax cut.
With huge budget surpluses just ahead, the question of whether to cut taxes has shifted to when? and by how much? With Fuzzy Math , Paul Krugman dissects the Bush tax proposal and shows us who wins, who loses, and how quickly the tax cuts will consume the surplus. Always the equal-opportunity critic when it comes to faulty economics, Krugman also tucks into the Democratic alternatives to the Bush plan.
This little book packs a big wallop. Together with major media appearances, it puts Krugman's wisdom and steely-eyed analysis firmly at the center of the debate about how to spend upwards of \$2 trillion. It may very well change the course of history.
Paul Krugman , who "writes better than any economist since John Maynard Keynes" ( Fortune ), writes the biweekly "Reckonings" column for the New York Times . Winner of the John Bates Clark Medal, Krugman teaches at Princeton University.

##### By Jonathan Rowe
Several months ago a professor at the University of North Carolina published findings that turned beliefs about the economy upside down. Health improves, he said, as the economy goes down. When the economy declines, to a point at least, deaths, smoking, obesity, heavy drinking, heart disease and some kinds of back problems all decline as well. "Sounds unlikely," said The New York Times. And indeed it is, by the standard reckonings at least. We all know that an expanding economy makes us better off - or do we? Another study, this one in England, found that shopping, which is the drive train of the entire economy, and which is supposed to make people feel good, actually can make them depressed. "For significant numbers, dissatisfaction is now part of the shopping process," one of the authors said. (As though we needed a study to tell us that.) What's going on here? How could we feel better when the experts say we should feel worse, and worse when they say we should feel better? Could it be that economists don't know up from down to begin with?

Mathematically Correct is the informal, nationwide organization that fights the Establishment on behalf of sanity and quality in math education. David Gelernter, NY Post Mathematics achievement in America is far below what we would like it to be. Recent " reform " efforts only aggravate the problem. As a result, our children have less and less exposure to rigorous, content-rich mathematics . The advocates of the new, fuzzy math have practiced their rhetoric well. They speak of higher-order thinking, conceptual understanding and solving problems, but they neglect the systematic mastery of the fundamental building blocks necessary for success in any of these areas. Their focus is on things like calculators, blocks, guesswork, and group activities and they shun things like algorithms and repeated practice. The new programs are shy on fundamentals and they also lack the mathematical depth and rigor that promotes greater achievement. Concerned parents are in a state of dismay and have begun efforts to restore content, rigor, and genuinely high expectations to mathematics education. This site provides relevant background and information for parents, teachers, board members and the public from around the country.

As a homeschooler, you will be able to avoid these horrible new math programs used in some public schools. Though you can probably find these books cheap in thrift stores if schools are using them in your area, they might not be a good idea from the mathematical point of view.

Robert Bixby, Concord Coalition Differences in estimates of the cost of the Medicare drug benefit are due to different predictions of future demand. (Photo: CBS/The Early Show) The war in Iraq is a large potential cost that the president's budget largely ignores. (Photo: AP) (CBS) In a presidential debate nearly four years ago, George W. Bush accused Al Gore of employing "fuzzy math." But increasingly, it's the White House that's being accused of numerical fuzziness on Medicare, the deficit and jobs. President Bush last year signed a Medicare prescription drug benefit with an estimated price tag of \$395 billion. A month later, the White House said the actual cost was more like \$534 billion. In his State of the Union address, the president pledged to halve the deficit by 2009. But his plan largely excludes the cost of operations in Iraq and Afghanistan and does not reflect the long-term impact of Mr. Bush's proposal to make recent tax cuts permanent.

Kerby Anderson Commentary
##### Fuzzy Math
July 6, 1999 Concerned parents and political activists have been complaining about fuzzy math for years, but the battle over this new way of teaching math in Plano, Texas has started to bring the issue into focus. For years I've been reading about these new textbooks that change the way math is taught. These techniques are sometimes called "fuzzy math" or "whole math" or the "new new math." I've even heard of a textbook referred to as rainforest algebra because it spends a good portion of the book talking about ecology and the loss of rainforests instead of teaching algebra. Now you would think that math is math. But of course I used to think that grammar was grammar until educators introduced such things as the whole language approach and changed the way students learned English and grammar. The same seems to be taking place with these new math books. The textbook in question is called Connected Mathematics . Math is taught through group work and through discovery learning. In essence, students are to teach themselves and to work in groups. I well remember when that fad hit my high school my senior year. Since I lived just outside Berkeley, California I got to see some of these educational fads 20 years before most school districts. My math teacher came back from a seminar on group learning and implemented it in our pre-calculus class. Let me say it was pretty much of a disaster. Most of us learned math in spite of the program, not because of it.

Kerby Anderson Commentary
##### Fuzzy Math
October 4, 1999 A month ago, I wrote a commentary about Connected Mathematics, often called "fuzzy math." Since then there has been an article about this issue in the Washington Times. When a major national newspaper does a story about a Plano math book, you know that this local controversy is taking on national implications. The concept is called fuzzy math, because it reminds critics of what was done years ago with English. No longer was phonics taught, but a whole language approach was introduced into the schools changing the way students learned English and grammar. The same seems to be taking place in the textbook called Connected Mathematics. Math is taught through group work and through discovery learning. Math teachers no longer teach. Instead students are to teach themselves and to work in groups. Six families from Plano have filed a class-action lawsuit claiming their children were not learning in the connected math program and were not given the option of a more traditional math course. The Washington Times article points out that other school districts have been testing the connected math program. So what happens in Plano will affect more than just students in the Dallas area.

http://www.irregulartimes.com/fuzzy.html
##### George W. Bush's Fuzzy Math
Soon after the Supreme Court decision that led Al Gore to concede the presidential election to George W. Bush, I wrote an article entitled Bush Wins, Bush Loses . In the article, I compared George W. Bush to Daffy Duck for the way that he has been duped into accepting a job so difficult that only an idiot would take it. The whole point of the article is that the difficulty of the political situation and President George Junior's inexperience, inarticulateness and general inability will combine to make him the least remarkable person to inhabit the Oval Office in American History. Well, it's not too surprising that a large number of the Republican faithful disagreed with me. Even less surprising is the fuzzy math that they used to justify their angry responses. Typical is the following, from a Republican who goes by the name of poetwarrior. This GOP guy writes, "I dissent. Well-written but not a very honest diatribe. Remember: half the country voted for this man." Now, I ask you: what's not honest about saying 1st that George W. Bush is not very smart and 2nd that he's got a very difficult job ahead of him? Honesty hurts sometimes.
