Given these findings, it is not surprising that for many companies the most pressing challenges with
social media are in understanding the potential to make a difference in their business, measuring its
effectiveness, and aligning social media activities to an impact on company financials. (Figure 2)

Our study has signicant real-world economic implications. European funds grew from a little
over $3 trillion during 2000 to nearly $9 trillion during 2007; by the end of 2007, the European
industry amounted to nearly three-quarters of the size of the U.S. mutual fund industry, which, over
the same period, grew from $7 trillion to $12 trillion. Further, there were over 35,000 European-
domiciled mutual funds by the end of 2010 (Investment Company Institute, 2011), almost ve
times the number of U.S.-domiciled funds, indicating that the European market is highly frag-

If the proof of such a trivial consequence of sin2 A + cos2 A = 1 is now
reserved only for college-intending students, how does NCTM expect the
average high school graduate to understand sec2 A = 1+tan2 A ? To graph
(sec2 A) and (1+tan2 A) separately and observe that the two graphs coincide,
as suggested in [PEL]? With this in mind, we ﬁnd it hard to believe that
“the mathematics of [the Standards’] core program is suﬃciently broad and
deep so that students’ options for further study would not be limited” ([N1],
By being lumped together with theories that superﬁcially resemble it,
TSC has mistakenly been criticised for reductionism. For instance, theories
that focus on the role of perception for creating and experiencing art tend to
do so at the expense of isolating artist, artwork, and viewer from their social,
ideological, and historical settings (Dengerink Chaplin 2005). Thereby facts
about how the historical context shapes perceptual experience are ignored
