The San Antonio Express-News reports
that “Reviewers have found 109,263 errors in sample copies of math
textbooks to be used next fall in Texas.”
One second-grade math book, for example,
has 4 plus 7 equaling 10.
OK, anybody can make a mistake. But at least own up to it.
Many of the math book errors resulted in
faulty translations from English- to Spanish-language textbooks…
Uh, I think in Spain, 7+4 still equals 11.
