[en] New Math ; ideology ; mathematic education
[en] Since 1958 a series of new reform programmes, known as “New Math
reform” tried to fundamentally deconstruct the mathematics education of schools in
the United States. This reform aimed to promote the “problem-solving” abilities in
students and was a means to modernise not just the school math education but also
the idea of why students should learn mathematics. Later, the reform project travelled
to Europe through the support of the OECD and some other international or
European organisation. This paper briefly reviews the process of the adaptation of
this reform project in Luxembourg during the 1960s and 1970s. The aim is to look at
how the ideological background about mathematics education, and in general
education, mattered in the preceding of this school reform.
