New New Math

Another flavor of non-traditional Basic Arithmetic instruction?

e.g. TERC math?

supported by the NCTM http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NCTM

The New Math of the ‘60s, the NewNew Math of the ‘80s and today’s Common Core math all stem from the idea that the traditional way of teaching math simply does not work... The opportunity to change the way math is taught, as NCTM declared in its endorsement of the Common Core standards, is “unprecedented.” And yet, once again, the reforms have arrived without any good system for helping teachers learn to teach them.
