Remediation and integrated math 

Scholar's Notebook reports on the results of surveys of graduates of Wayzata High School, which uses integrated math exclusively (except for AP and an off-campus UMTYMP program). Of the 54% of the students who went to college and took a math placement test, 24% had to take remedial math. 20% got to take an advcanded math class. Is that success?

(Meanwhile, Littlest won her school division of a national year-long mathematics meet.)
