Part of the problem is the implicit definition of math as polynomials, integers, or slopes. Math is not that, math is patterns. Your well-placed disdain is for what we have been told math is, not what it really is. It is not just math instruction that needs to be rethought (e.g., not the "how"), it is "what" is being taught that needs to be rethought. Math - patterns - doesn't suck. Forcing most people to learn about about polynomials, integers, or slopes - in the way in which it is done - does. (For most people, not for some of us.)Branzburghttps://www.blogger.com/profile/02958536497477359917noreply@blogger.com
