Description:

This webpage includes a 6-minute audio interview with Stanford University professor Keith Devlin, who describes how elementary math education has changed. Because of advances in technology and its impact on everyday life, arithmetic is now the gateway to algebraic thinking, which has become the new end goal. Devlin distinguishes people's innate math abilities from the challenge of paper/pencil arithmetic. The page illustrates an example comparing two methods for multiplication. Users may listen to the interview online, download an mp3 file, or read a transcript.
