Personally, I think this is our education system wanting to try and keep up with countries like china. Which is not a good thing since we have vastly different school systems.

What do you guys think?

I think our education system is too industrialized and needs to get fuckin' thrown in the shitter. Common core math is not going to fix the fundamental problem.

It's basically how I was taught math, and makes sense to me. One of my BS's is in math, so I'm okay with it.

Back in the yellow-fear 80's, "Japan has better math scores!" was the battle cry, but ignoring the fact that Japanese schools also had a different approach to teaching math, that emphasized solving the problem rather than memorizing the formula. (Like we see in test-study scenes, where the characters ask, "How do you solve this problem?")
A little harder to teach in more individualistic countries where you can't get a high school class together to organize a culture festival or clean up the room after school, but we hadn't watched anime yet back then, and didn't know any of this.

Fuck that shit. I had trouble showing my "proof" with the old method but I got the right answers and typically got A's in math. I would fail todays math.

I love math..well Ballistics and Physics anyway, nothing like it I tell you. Bunch of numbers and crap that end up with you putting a hole in somebody from 2000 meters away.

Core Math though is math on meth and speed balls. Who ever thought that bullshit up should be introduced to how the Army teaches math.
