The teaching of algebra in most of today’s classrooms is not significantly different from what it was 50 years ago. Certainly, there have been some attempts to change algebra instruction, such as the "new math" reform movement of the 1960s. But the changes that persist in today’s algebra curricula, as a result of that movement, are more superficial than substantial. On the other hand, mathematics and its applications have changed spectacularly in the past 50 years. The advent of technology, for example, in both applied and pure mathematics, has changed the way mathematicians, scientists, and social scientists do and use mathematics. It is high time for the classroom instruction of algebra to reflect some of these changes. This is why, in some exciting, interactive, hands-on algebra classes, we are beginning to see changes in what, how, and in what order mathematics is being taught.
