Math Video

This is very interesting. It takes about 15 minutes, but if you have time, watch it. I was not surprised, as I have been reading about this, but I’ve never actually seen what they are talking about. It kind of makes your head hurt.

I was pleasantly surprised that she mentioned Singapore Math at the end of the video. That is what we use. It is different than what I was used to, but I can see where they are going with it. They also teach “alternative methods” for problem solving, but their methods often are directed at the goal of being more able to do math in one’s head. (Example: You can figure out 49 – 24 because you know 50 – 25.)
