Default Re: Old Math vs New Math

Well, since you didn't really provide a definition of "old math" or a definition of "new math", then would I be safe in assuming that old math refers to math theory developed in the past, while new math refers to math theory being developed in the present?

Current math revolves around all of the proven developments made in the past, but past math is not necessarily accurate, and neither is new math. I would say that they are equally "good", for lack of a better adjective.

I'm no mathematician, but I believe it doesn't matter if it's new or old, as long as it's accurate. I would argue that the whole point of math is accuracy and conclusiveness.

Generally people will assume that new math is more accurate or conclusive than old math, but this is not necessarily true.

Accurate and conclusive math is better.

Well, as two seperate ways of teaching, they both seem to have been effective, so I'm not sure how to compare the two. How math has been taught has been changing over the last 50 years.

On another note, from what I'm hearing as I type this, there seem to be many different ways of teaching new math, almost as if there are multiple sub-types of each type of education.

Honestly, I'm not sure if you can use a universal definition for "new math", as it seems like each district with each state within each country has its own way of teaching "new math".
