http://www.jumpmath.org/cms/node/346
<p>John Mighton, founder of JUMP Math, is quoted in a story about falling math scores. He says that teaching approaches should be grounded in findings from cognitive science research and that teachers also need to have the freedom to try new ways to help their students learn math, which should then be “rigorously” tracked to see if the innovation works or not. <a href="http://news.nationalpost.com/2014/02/19/eqao-math-scores-dropping-between-grades-3-and-6-for-significant-number-of-ontario-students-study/" target="_blank">Read the article</a>.</p>
