The debate on twitter

Dyscalculia: News from the web:

What if you just eliminated high school math entirely and replaced it with an extra science course each year? The science course would teach math but within the context of the science. The more I think about it the more I like the idea.

Interesting thought, but others say:

Part of the beauty of mathematics is theory apart from any particular application. I worry that if we offload mathematics instruction into science classrooms, this point will be lost. Mathematics, like art, can have value when it doesn’t have any obvious application.
