Description:

Compelling chapters on the need for quantitative literacy in the school curriculum. The book, available complete and free online, argues that “The world of the twenty-first century is a world awash in numbers. . . . Unfortunately, despite years of study and life experience in an environment immersed in data, many educated adults remain functionally innumerate. Most U.S. students leave high school with quantitative skills far below what they need to live well in today’s society.”
