I have a confession to make. In all my years of teaching middle school math and subscribing to MTMS, I have never submitted a manuscript to the journal. Or to any other journal for that matter. There were always more urgent things to be done: lessons to be planned, tests to be graded, grade books to be updated, and so on. Bus duty, anyone? Lunch duty? Morning duty? Detention duty? You name it, I've volunteered and reported for duty.

Were we to poll classroom teachers on which strand of mathematics is most neglected, there is a good chance that they would nominate probability and statistics.
