Check this out.
Those of you who are older like me, will instantly see that they've taken something that should be easy and virtually instantly known.
And replaced it with a long, drawn out, ridiculous method to get the same result instead.http://www.education.com/question/math-taught-schools-changed-much/
For example, instead of looking at 2x4 and knowing instantly it's eight.
They have to do a long drawn out process, to arrive at 8 instead. First time I myself saw it, I thought this is crazy.
Now I know it's worse than just crazy. It's dangerous.
In fact it's even led to where our nation is at now. We are now a nation full of people, who use certain kinds of tech everyday.
And have no clue what to do if it breaks down, how it does what it does, or why it does what it does.
That's a dangerous path to send our nation and our kids down people, it really is.
We are raising an entire generation or two currently, who will not be able to think for themselves.
I don't know about you, but the thought that this is who will be running things in my golden years.
Scares the hell out of me.
