A group of students in Lake Charles, Louisiana is promoting knowing the multiplication facts.
Those who think that the traditional ways of teaching mathematics have been shown to be harmful for all students, will find this quote from the article to be heresy:
“The ability of an individual of any age to be able to multiply consistently and effectively can build confidence in other areas of life,” Nonnette said. “We as an organization will succeed in our mission to enhance the awareness of math education through one multiplication chart at a time.”
Now, if only we can find some way to make the progressives think they came up with this!
