Why Numbers Count: Quantitative Literacy for Tomorrow's America
Lynn Arthur Steen
College Entrance Examination Board, 1997 - Reference - 194 pages
This authoritative, broad-based study makes the case that "innumeracy"--math illiteracy--is rapidly becoming an active agent of disenfranchisement. The College Board asked math professionals what can be done about innumeracy, and their answers make exhilarating and sobering reading. This timely, thought-provoking book is sure to generate extensive media attention as well as academic debate.
