YES - the methods we use to teach math are backwards and outdated.

I've lost count of how many times individuals from other countries (namely China and India) have told me that the way US schools teach math is unnecessarily strenuous and complicated. 

Our education is behind, especially compared to other countries.

Teachers could never really explain it well to me. I learned best by teaching myself with the book Confused I would study hardcore, pass the test, then forget it all the next week LOL

I seriously hate the kids who would never do their homework, talk all day in class and sleep but passed ALL the text with an A!! That pissed me off cuz I'm over here struggling and sweating bullets! Angry Then they used their intelligence for dumb sh*t! SO ANNOYING!!

my 9th grade math teacher was the bomb. looked like doc from back to the future. spazzy as hell but a freaking genius. 

he would teach us the textbook method and then what he called the "idiot simple" way to solve equations and then grade on a curve. i think he graded that way to gauge his own teaching abilities. cool ass dude.
