A study as to why Celsius & the Metric System are value added assets for K-12 Mathematics and Science Education, and why Fahrenheit & the Imperial System are regressive.


The book also got to the core (no pun intended) as to what's wrong with Common Core.

Elementary and middle school teachers as well as home-school parents will find lots of material to engage students in experiencing the joy, pleasure and excitement of mathematics.


Metric units of length - rich in patterns - easily learned by

students in other OECD countries:

1 kilometer = 1,000 meters = 103 m.
1,000,000 millimeters = 106 mm.
1 meter = 100 centimeters =  102 cm.
1 cm = 100 millimeters =  102 mm.

Happy 1st Grader

Imperial units of length - lacking in patterns - has to be memorized by students in the United States:

 

1 Mile = 1760 yards = 5280 feet = 63,360 inches
1 yard = 36 inches = 10? inch
1 foot = 12 inches = 10? inch
1 mile = 10? inch

Unhappy 1st Grader


 

The Path to Improved Math and Science Education

Through Metric System Yes, Common Core No: A Letter to American Parents, Educators, and Politicians from a Mathematics Teacher, experienced mathematics teacher Dillon Lobban explains in analytic terms why the United States needs the metric system for K-12 mathematics and science and what is wrong with the Common Core State Standards. He delves into the problem of poor performance of American 15-year-old students on the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) tests and what must be done to address this very serious problem.

Book by Dillon Lobban

In Metric System Yes, Common Core No: A Letter to American Parents, Educators & Politicians from a Mathematics Teacher, academic author Dillon Lobban provides analysis of the current unacceptable state of science and mathematics education in our country. He insists that effective resources are available to make a great leap forward. He delves into the problem of poor performance of American 15-year-old students on the triennially offered Programme for International Student Assessment, (PISA) tests.

Metric System Yes, Common Core No: A Letter to American Parents, Educators & Politicians from a Mathematics Teacher
is a must-read, for parents, for teachers and policy makers engaged in mathematics education. Through his book, Dillon invites parents and the US Congress take a closer look at why our country needs the metric system. Furthermore, he suggests that in a Celsius environment, which is rich in negative numbers, we can start algebra much earlier than is the current practice in American K-12 schools. This would also allow the average student to complete calculus in high school, providing optimum pre-college readiness in mathematics and science.

The book not only delineates how we can revolutionize K-12 math and science education but also suggests a default set of standards to immediately replace Common Core.
