Should Math Be Taught in Schools?

A mathematics-themed video that will probably raise a smile or two. Thanks to several of you (especially MJ) who passed this link on to me...plus the other 1,212,000+ people who watched this video.

After you watch the full video, be sure to read the information below, plus browse the commentary people (more than 1400 comments) offered relative to the video.

The suggested video is Miss USA 2011 Should Math Be Taught In Schools? .

Please be aware that this video is a spoof of a "real" Miss USA video, where the posed question was about teaching evolution in schools. Not everyone knew this math-video was a spoof, even though such is stated right below the video. But as one viewer wrote: "This is a joke. They are actors. And America thinks it's real.... that's the sad part."

Again, as part of the web resources for this next year, I am trying to suggest an on-line video(s) each month. Thus, if you have a favorite video (e.g. YouTube, TeacherTube, whatever....), please send the link to me (with your comments?) and I will try to include it and share it with others.
