I have leaned that math is starting to be taught in a way that slows the learning down. There seems to be a lot more terminology and processes to complete the work, almost like there is additional information being added onto concepts in math. In my personal experiences, math always seemed to be taught where less was required and you just knew what everything meant. Now it seems that there are many more steps and ways of doing math that takes more time but still provides you with an answer. I’m slightly conflicted in the range of pedagogy math seems to have…I was taught as a student that there was a right way to do math and a wrong way to do math and now…there are so many ways it’s hard to comprehend and keep track of them all.
