Practical math education

Can not agree more with the TED presentation from Arthur Benjamin (below). Essentially he argues that proficiency in statistics, probability, and meaning of data(sets) should be the pinnacle of high school math education.

Well, considering that US population was around 309 Million at the time of this writing , it is hard to make sense of Ms. Etcoff’s number of prescriptions without further context if you are alert about meaningful data.
