Here's something you don't see every day: An informative, non-polemical,
non-hysterical news article about new math ± old math.

Story Highlights
# Parents sometimes struggle with kids' concept-based math curricula
# Method teach the ideas behind mathematics, rather than rote procedures
# Parents don't understand the new methods; can't help with homework
# Rebel parents teach kids the old -fashioned math methods
