But the 'formalization' cannot b...Spot on! But the 'formalization' cannot be overlooked. There eventually needs to be a precise development of the tools being used, which is something that often gets overlook in this sort of 'discovery learning' approach.<br /><br />For example, sqrt(x) and x^2 aren't technically inverses. They only are if we limit the domain of x^2 to all x>0. While most people don't need to know this, it is a very important concept that--if not understood-- will lead to misunderstanding later in more advanced mathematical topics.<br />...Before you know it, Mathematics will be set back a couple hundred years. (I jest, of course--but still) The problem is mathematics is very multifaceted. There are the pure mathematicians doing their thing, and there are those who apply it doing there's. There are those who need to trudge through it to prove themselves worthy of a degree and then never use it; and, there are those who never need it. Yet the approach to math education is very straight and narrow--partly because when we are teaching the foundational concepts in secondary schools we do not yet know where everyone is going to end up (nor do we want to limit them by sending them off in one direction or another)<br /><br />Algebra is already a 'gatekeeper' (those who pass it move on and get BS degrees, those who don't find a BA degree (again I jest--sort of)). Why not diversify how we teach it to fit the goals of those learning it--the mathematicians, the scientist, the doctors, the "burger-flippers"?<br />A: Because then you'll quickly find yourself in a class system and we'll be right back in dark ages of feudalism.Thaslamhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/16890604336141114110noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-1345020366927281139.post-91599328308696532202014-10-29T18:19:03.355-05:002014-10-29T18:19:03.355-05:00Yes! this stuff is not worth.

Then I attempt to do the next one and get it correct but then subsequently screw up the next problem, it will say if you miss two more problems we will move on. It does not do enough explanation as it is says due to this property but it does not make one lick of sense... This math crap is a curse not a blessing. The instructor finally gets around to finally showing us a little bit of what we are working on but moves way too fast and acts like we all know what she is doing and why. I have not been in stupid math in over a year and she could give two shits. The guy next to me COMPLETELY fails his first test and has to be downgraded to math 094, ok so is that not saying something??? I have taken two tests now, I passed the first one with a 72 percent, next, I failed with a 45!! WOW, the difference was linear equations and then moving onto factoring.

So I returned as an adjunct college instructor for developmental math and college math. My training in math education has been to "construct" math learning. I feel our education system has failed us. Students are no longer given basic number sense. They come to college unable to perform basic math operations without a calculator. Students entering college do not even know basic multiplication tables. How can they do fractions with no understanding of multiples and now we are throwing this at them. They will be pressing buttons until they get a correct answer - not knowing how they came about the answer but thrilled to move on. Is this education? Where does critical thinking come in? I thank you so much for your article. At least I know I am not the only one who is disappointed in the lack of concern for rich education. It is sad that making monetary profit outweighs the gift of knowledge.
