In a Freakonomics Radio episode called “America’s Math Curriculum Doesn’t Add Up” (Ep. 391), Steve Levitt investigated whether traditional math instruction is really preparing students for the work of the digital era. What he found was a curriculum that is not teaching data literacy. If you want to be a part of Levitt’s project to change the K-12 math curriculum to emphasize data analysis and statistics, you can find all the relevant resources below.

This project is funded by Schmidt Futures and the University of Chicago Center for Radical Innovation for Social Change (RISC).
