politics in mathematics

I hadn't seen this, but it fits in to the 1995 NCTM standards and I don't doubt they've continued to carry this to the standards today. There they advocated teaching leftist ideals in the mathematics.

This sort of thing makes a leftists heart beat faster, but luckily you don't have to address social issues while fighting constructivist math. Doing so alienates people you need on your side.

The mathematics fails on its own.
