Fuzzy Math in Arms Reductions
by Charles V. Peña Charles V. Peña is a senior defense policy analyst at the Cato Institute. Candidate Bush pledged that he would unilaterally reduce the U.S. strategic nuclear arsenal if he became president. Last November, President Bush and Russian President Vladimir Putin both declared that the United States and Russia would reduce their nuclear weapons by roughly two-thirds over the next decade, leaving each side with no more than 2,200 warheads. While not a formal agreement, this was considered a milestone in strategic relations between the two countries, swiftly achieving deep weapons cuts that could not be agreed to by a prior decade of formal negotiations. What got lost in the shuffle, amidst all the good news, was a statement released by the White House that changed how those weapons would be counted from "weapons" to "operational nuclear weapons." Now the Nuclear Posture Review reveals that many of the warheads, bombs, and missiles included in President Bush's promised nuclear reductions will be retained and kept in reserve, i.e., they will not be operational nuclear weapons and thus not count towards the 2,200 maximum. As such, they will be available for redeployment and potential use. This is an accounting sleight of hand, bad arms control, and bad policy.

Now This is Fuzzy Math
The National Taxpayers Union Foundation (a "non-partisan" organization) took a look at the rhetoric of the Democrat candidates for president and tried to figure out what effect they would have on the federal deficit. What their analysis reveals that in spite of their attacks on Bush's economic policies and the worsening deficit, and in spite of promises to repeal all or part of the tax cuts, every candidate's position would increase the federal deficit by billions, or even trillions, of dollars. The NTUF study systematically examined the fiscal policy implications of the eight contenders' agendas, using campaign and third-party sources (like the Congressional Budget Office) to assign a cost to each budget proposal offered by the candidates. For actual legislation that the candidates have endorsed, the study also relies on NTUF's BillTally project, a computerized accounting system that has, since 1991, tabulated the cost or savings of every piece of legislation introduced in Congress with a net annual impact of $1 million or more. Highlights of the study include:
  • If the policy agenda of any one of the eight candidates were enacted in full, annual federal spending would rise by at least $169.6 billion (Lieberman) and as much as $1.33 trillion (Sharpton). This would translate to a yearly budget hike of between 7.6% and 59.5%.

innovative math curriculum endorsed by the Clintons Administration
but sharply criticized by leading math professors in an open letter
Nov. 18, 1999 in the Washington Post. But what is MathLand - other than just a curriculum that has kids count a million bird seeds to show how large a number a million is? MathLand is one of the most popular examples of "fuzzy math" curriculum materials, produced by Creative Publications, a division of the Chicago Tribune. It is very new to the market - and to schools. "Fuzzy math" is a new concept that how a student handles a problem is more important than the result that he gets. MathLand is for kindergarten through sixth grade; Creative Publications sells a related series called MathScape for middle school.

Fuzzy Math Returns SYNOPSIS: Don't sacrifice our long term economic prospects in the name of ending a short-term slump Post-terror nerves aside, what mainly ails the U.S. economy is too much of a good thing. During the bubble years businesses overspent on capital equipment; the resulting overhang of excess capacity is a drag on investment, and hence a drag on the economy as a whole. In time this overhang will be worked off. Meanwhile, economic policy should encourage other spending to offset the temporary slump in business investment. Low interest rates, which promote spending on housing and other durable goods, are the main answer. But it seems inevitable that there will also be a fiscal stimulus package. That package should include only measures that really will promote spending now, when the economy needs it. It shouldn't include anything that worsens the long-run budget position more than is necessary, or anything that looks like "hitchhiking," exploiting the short-run difficulties of the economy to pursue unrelated long-run goals. Unfortunately, the Bush administration has just taken a big step away from those principles.

Fuzzy math - programs you are better off NOT using
The website is devoted to the concerns raised by parents and scientists about the invasion of US schools by the New-New Math ( also called Fuzzy Math and Mickey-Mouse Math) and the need to restore basic skills to math education. 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. For more information, see Mathematics Program Reviews and Information at their website. "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."

As America confronts a rising tide of red ink, some taxpayers may be hoping that at least one of the remaining Democratic Presidential candidates can calm the turbulent fiscal waters. After all, each of the White House hopefuls has disparaged recent projections of massive budget shortfalls (nearing $500 billion for Fiscal Year 2004) for their own rhetorical purposes. John Kerry, for example, claims "this Administration has turned fiscal responsibility on its ear." Howard Dean states he will commit to "set the nation on the path to a balanced budget." Joseph Lieberman accuses White House officials of "hiding behind the war and homeland security to excuse their own fiscal irresponsibility," while Wesley Clark declares he "would restore the basic principle of responsibility to the budget process: all tax and spending proposals must be paid for without increasing the deficit." But for all their rhetoric, will any of the Democrats actually reduce spending? Don't hold your breath. A recent study produced by the National Taxpayers Union Foundation (NTUF) indicates that if the policy agenda of any one of the seven candidates were enacted in full, annual federal spending would rise by at least $169.6 billion and as much as $1.33 trillion. This would translate to a yearly budget hike of between 7.6 percent and 59.5 percent. All of our estimates were compiled with sources such as the Congressional Budget Office and our own BillTally legislative cost-accounting database.

by Jamie McKenzie ( about the author During the last presidential election campaign, President Bush attacked his opponent for budget figures he called "fuzzy math." This article will examine several examples of fuzzy thinking, science, reading and math emerging as part of the new Federal education law - NCLB/ESEA - as it is being implemented by the ED Department. Fuzzy Budget Math It is especially ironic that we now see "fuzzy math" appear in the new Federal budget, as deficit spending and tax breaks for the wealthy become keystones of the administration's policies. Deficit spending is accompanied by a drastic reduction in the amount originally promised to fuel expensive new NCLB mandates. Whatever happened to a balanced budget and a commitment to domestic priorities? The failure to fund NCLB at promised levels eliminates one of the main selling points of the original law - the supposed availability of financial assistance and rewards to districts and schools that improve learning results, especially for disadvantaged students. Inadequate funding combined with tough regulations and new expenditures mandated by NCLB amount to a collapse of policy, especially as the weak

Fuzzy Math
It's been a while since I wrote about the mind-numbing idiocy of the Iraq Body Count website, so I thought I should check it out again... well, I guess you can always count on them to disappoint you. Since I last wrote about it, the maximum casuality estimate there has doubled to almost 10,000. My main problem with the site is that it will count absolutely anything it can to jack those esimates up as high as possible... even going so far as to count civilians killed by terrorists, and probably the actual deaths of terrorists themselves. Here is part of what the Iraq Body Count website lists as its stated mission "This is a human security project to establish an independent and comprehensive public database of media-reported civilian deaths in Iraq resulting directly from military actions by the USA and its allies in 2003." I noticed several incidents displayed in the table directly below this, where the words "car bomb" were listed in the "weapons" column. Even someone as mentally unbalanced as the person running that website has to realize that car bombs are not weapons being used by

March 12, 2003 By Matthew Clavel
“Come on, I need someone to take a chance. Who can start the puzzle?” It wasn’t working. We’d gone. through six straight wrong answers, and now the children were tired of feeling lost. It was only October, and already my fourth-grade public school class in the South Bronx was demoralized. Day after day of going over strange, seemingly disconnected math lessons had squelched my students’ interest in the subject.
Then, quietly, 10-year-old David spoke up. “Mr. Clavel, no one understands this stuff.” He looked up at me with a defeated expression; other children nodded pleadingly.
“Look,” I began, sighing deeply. “Math isn’t half as hard as you all probably think right now.” A few children seemed relieved—at least I wasn’t just denying their problem. “There are different ways to teach it,” I continued. “I don’t want to do this either . . . so we’re not going to—at least most of the time.” I was thinking out loud now, and many of the children looked startled. “We can use these math books when we need them, but I’m going to figure out different ways to teach you the most important things.”
If school officials knew how far my lessons would deviate from the school-district-mandated math program in the months ahead, they probably would have fired me on the spot. But boy, did my children need a fresh approach. Since kindergarten, most of them had been taught math using this same dreadful curriculum, called Everyday Mathematics—a slightly older version of a program that the New York City schools chancellor, Joel Klein, has now unwisely chosen for most of Gotham’s public elementary schools; the district had phased in Everyday Mathematics—grade by grade, and it had just reached fourth grade during my first year of teaching.

fuzzy math
noun . Mathematics education that de-emphasizes memorization and rote learning in favor of a cooperative approach to solving problems.
Example Citation:
"A method that disdains the notion of adults hierarchically imparting knowledge to kids, integrated math does not require students to memorize multiplication tables, compute fractions or learn other basic skills essential to algebraic success. It's often rightly derided as ' fuzzy math ' because of its murky goals, which include, according to one popular integrated math program, 'linking past experience to new concepts, sharing ideas and developing concept readiness through hands-on explorations.'"
Los Angeles Times , January 29, 2000
This new approach to teaching math first appeared in the late 80s, and it didn't take long for the various names applied to it to split into two camps. Those in favor of the new methodology called it "constructivist," "integrated math," "whole math," or "new new math." Those opposed labeled it "fuzzy math" (which first appeared in 1994), "Mickey Mouse math," "math lite," or "algebra lite."

    His budget figures are misleading and suspicious.
    By Tad DeHaven J oshua Bolten, the president's budget chief, took to the opinion pages of The Wall Street Journal a week ago to defend the Bush administration's record on the budget amid rising complaints. Many of those complaints, as Bolten's piece notes, are coming from fiscal conservatives dismayed by the massive growth in federal spending under Bush. Over the past week, almost every major news outlet has carried front-page stories on the rising tide of conservative discontent. Many people who support the president's tax cuts and his conduct of the war can no longer stomach his expansion of big government via big spending. If Bolten's response to the critics in the Wall Street Journal represents the best case the administration can make for itself, the criticism is only going to spread and multiply. Bolten begins by trotting out the same tiresome excuses we've been hearing for several years: The deficit was caused, first, by declining federal revenues resulting from a sluggish economy and, second, by the need to spend money to fight terrorism. These explanations are partly true. But the administration could have responded to these trends by cutting low-priority areas of the budget. Instead, Bush signed every spending bill that crossed his desk. Bolten argues that the president hasn't vetoed a single spending bill because "He hasn't had to." Wrong. The president hasn't vetoed a single spending bill because he didn't
