Math Education: An Inconvenient Truth
I've been wanting to post this for a while since I first found this. This highlights this thing called New Math. They didn't teach me this when I was in high school and it seems very much more complicated than how it was when I was one of these young bucks going to school learning this for the first time.
I hope this isn't what they're teaching kids in the Chicago Public Schools, but I do know that if my kids are having problems with math and it's because of this I might question their teacher's methods. I don't know, I don't have any kids yet. But I do know some of you who read this blog do have kids.
