Are you better at math than a fourth grader?

You've probably heard about the hand-wringing that surrounds poor math abilties of US kids compared to those of many other nations.

You can read the details at their Web site, http://nces.ed.gov/timss/.

But even better, you can match yourself up against 4th, 8th, and 12th graders in math, science, and a couple of other areas by taking an online quiz at that site:
