  1. Barry Garelick Math Education in the US: Still Crazy After All These Years

    My talk on the status of K-12 math education in the US and how it got that way. Given in San Luis Obispo, CA, on February 17, 2018 at the invitation of the local Sons of the American Revolution. If you want to skip the history and cut right to the Common Core part, it starts at 19:24, so then you only have to watch 11 minutes rather than a half hour!

    For those who may be interested in my books, you can order them from Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Barry-Garelick/e/B013Z77J9Y/ref=dp_byline_cont_book_1

  6. Gerald Jay Sussman on Flexible Systems, The Power of Generic Operations

    Flexible Systems The Power of Generic Operations Abstract Most systems we build work well for the application that they were designed for, but they are brittle in that adapting to even small changes in the problem requires large changes in the code. Can we optimize for flexibility, trading off other virtues like proofs of correctness or efficient execution? I think this is often the right path. Indeed, Postel’s Law, "Be conservative in what you do, be liberal in what you accept from others," is strong advice for enhancing robustness in open systems. In the spring term I teach an advanced programming class, where the goal is to learn how to avoid programming oneself into a corner. One of the most powerful (and dangerous) techniques for enhancing flexibility is the use of extensible generic operations. I will show where it is to our advantage to make systems with extensible generic operations, and how to control such systems. Bio Gerald Jay Sussman is the Panasonic Professor of Electrical Engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). He received his S.B. and Ph.D. degrees in mathematics from MIT in 1968 and 1973 respectively. He has been involved in artificial intelligence research at MIT since 1964. His research has centered on understanding the problem-solving strategies used by scientis…
