What Knowledge Is Essential In The Curriculum In A Digital Age?
Center for Curriculum Redesign
"Although Calculus is helpful for the 20-30% of bachelor’s degree students who enter college with a STEM major and are expected to take Calculus, what is the experience of the other 70-80%? …Currently, even in the best case scenario, students are still spending the majority of their time on material they will never use again once they choose a specialization. Knowledge taught in schools must be reorganized such that it is relevant to all students, while at the same time giving each student the opportunities to study in depth the prerequisite knowledge they will need for whatever career trajectory they choose. This is a balance well worth striving for.”
