The Faulty Logic of the ‘Math Wars’

A brilliant opinion piece by ALICE CRARY and W. STEPHEN WILSON in the Opinion Pages of the New Your Times. A highlighted message:

Mastering and using algorithms involves a special and important kind of thinking.

Read the whole paper. It also contains a great quote from  John Dewey: the goal of education

“is to enable individuals to continue their education.”
