In a letter to the editor in the New York Times, Karsten Stueber, professor and chair of the philosophy department at the College of the Holy Cross, argues that it is time for a fundamental attitude change toward STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) education.
In response to, “Who Says Math Has to Be Boring?” (editorial, “Numbers Crunch” series, Dec. 8), Stueber writes, “We do not do our children any favors by telling them that math is fun. Skills must be mastered and a certain amount of drudgery must be endured. However, mastery, like winning, can be a lot of fun.”
