"The U.S. is at the bottom of math education and nobody seems to know how to fix it."

"The number system in English is highly irregular. Not so in China, Japan and Korea. They have a logical counting system. Eleven is ten one. Twelve is ten two. Twenty-four is two ten four, and so on."

-Malcolm Gladwell

From the Wall Street Journal
