Inteligro Math The Holistic Approach to Math and Science for the New Millennium Published by the Leadership Education Mentoring Institute Based on Thomas Jefferson Education principles from the book written by Oliver DeMille

My five stars are for the ideas it contains. The writing and editing wasn't so deserving.

Reread: May 2012 This book drives me slightly batty, but there are enough things in it that I find helpful that I continue to overlook some things. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~I just reread this book again. I liked it more than I thought so I rerated it. This is a great book that is very interesting. I'm glad I reread it and I'll reread it again. The only problem I have with it is that it needs a good editor. Once I get past that I'm fine with it.Reread again: 2/28/10

I enjoyed this book. The copy I read was an Advanced Copy. Therefore, I do not know how many changes were made between my copy and the final. There were times when I felt the author self-promoted a bit much. Overall, I enjoyed the book. It was nice to see math and science in a new light.

hmm I was expecting fantastic, and it wasn't quite. Pretty good. I suppose I have always loved math because I have seen and appreciated patterns and the interdisciplinary connections between math, art, science, writing, nature, etc. The one thing I gleaned from her ideas was the importance of making math a quest for truth, not just numbers or logic. Truth is immutable, and we can find it if we seek. From a technical standpoint, this book needed an editor even more than A Thomas Jefferson Educati [...]

This was not as excellent as I expected. The examples were VERY choppy, there were several editing errors, and footnotes were scarce. However, I do agree with the author that the current focus on Newtonian math in schools from elementary through college are hampering children from developing the ability to be mathematically literate. Being able to add 2 and 2 together or remember the quadratic equation are useful tools, but why sit and crunch out formulas without understanding their application? [...]

I gave it a four stars because I want to see education in Math change in our country. There are patterns and interdisciplinary connections between math, art, science, writing, nature, etc. The one thing this book reinforced is the importance of making math a quest for truth, not just numbers or logic. Seeking truth makes Math more holistically relevant in our lives, therefore making understanding the application of Math easier to understand. Unfortunately the editing and footnotes need some work [...]

Yea Tiffany! Great Read
