Abstract

In 1957, the director of one of the major math curriculum projects in the UK was quoted in a newspaper as saying: "Up went Sputnik and down came all the pure mathematicians saying we must do sets and be saved". The corresponding message from the National Math Panel Final Report is "Up went the economic performance of China and India and down came all the pure mathematicians saying we must do algebra and be saved".
