Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 18, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, September THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 43 Experts attempt to bring subject down to earth High school math "boring and outdated EDMONTON (CP) The mathematics curriculum used in high schools is irrelevant, boring and outdated, say two experts who are working at bringing the subject down to earth. Prof Alan Madgett and Peter Weygang are conducting an 18-month national survey which they hope will result in the design of a modern, practical high school mathematics curriculum Prof Madgett, assistant professor of mathematics at Laurentian University in Sudbury, Ont., and Mr. Weygang, head of mathematics at the Levack, Ont. District High School, are interviewing government, industry, business and education department leaders to determine attitudes.

"Mathematics text books 50 years ago were a lot more relevant at that time than today's math books Mr Weygang said says it is leaning toward hiring engineers and giving them math training rather than hiring mathematicians who have little practical background Prof Madgett says the electronic calculator is an important aid to teaching for the computer oriented mathematics industry. "It is cause for regret that few mathematics teachers in high schools have much personal experience with the numerous and varied applications of mathematics beyond the classical textbook illustrations Looks interesting Mike Scarland of Cambridge, Ont., introduces family dog, Lady, to his pet iguana, given to him by his school teacher.
