Do we need to makeover the way we teach math?

Last Night I watched a 12 minute video on TED discussing the need to change the way math is taught in the USA. It was a very interesting video and got my mind thinking. Do we need to change the way math is taught? I understand where Mr. Meyer is coming from and eager to try some of his methods. What are your thoughts?

  • YES!!!! My son could add and subtract in his head before he started school...then, in first grade...they screwed him up so bad. They taught them "Math Facts" and things like "Doubles plus one"...he hasn't been the same since.
