Dr. Sherry Mantyka'a book The Math Plague outlines teaching/learning strategies from mathematics underachievers. This includes students in the K-12 system as reported in the following reviews of the book:

"The Math Plague…helps parents understand how math
is taught today and why kids may be struggling with it.
…the book presents new methods of teaching
and understanding math."

- Kathryn Dorrell, Canadian Living

"Our mathematics curriculum has moved away
from drills and repetition towards a much greater
emphasis on problem solving. Both sides
of the learning equation need to be emphasized."

"Sherry Mantyka, a professor at Memorial University
who has closely studied math performance, said the
