[MathEd] Mathematics is not Memorisation

Memorizers are the lowest achievers and other Common Core math surprises

My Comments
Not very surprising to me, actually.

"Mathematics is a broad and multidimensional subject. Real mathematics is about inquiry, communication, connections, and visual ideas. We don’t need students to calculate quickly in math. We need students who can ask good questions, map out pathways, reason about complex solutions, set up models and communicate in different forms. All of these ways of working are encouraged by the Common Core."
