UK primary schools taught the box method for multiplying like 35 years ago, how were you taught to multiply in the US in primary school?

The way we did it in the early 90s/late 80s was straight rote memorization of times tables up to 12 lmao, altho obviously they taught the carrying poo poo as well

That's because the average teacher is an overpaid loving moron. Most teachers I've met have the skills of a Walmart grocery bagger but whine and moan they're not making a six figure income. Pointing out they don't work any holiday, half of December and the entire summer typically doesn't go over well.

How much do you make? because you are extremely fuckin stupid

like seriously. i actually dont know anything about what teachers do, so someone please educate me. when i was a kid the teachers basically stood at the front of the room for less than eight hours, either reading from a book, a power point, or giving us worksheets. now, i know corralling a bunch of kids is a skill in and of itself but looking back nothing they actually did seems like it took much more skill than your average minimum wage worker at like a hardware store or something

ah so that's why you ended up retarded, sorry about your piss poor schooling

I hadn't thought of it that way but that's a really interesting point

it reminds me of uh
like they say if you ask people who are natively bilingual which language they think in in their head, they say it's not really either, it's just this pure form of meaning that gets translated into either language when it needs to be communicated
like that
like math is concept, and what we learn are ways of giving it form, and it can help the concept take root and it can also help the concept process faster

math is an arabic terrorist plot, America cowtows to the Saudis by not calling Al Jabra by it's real name

lol

is algebra arabic? wasn't the middle east the "cradle of civilization" for a couple centuries or something, and that's why we use arabic numerals?

I'm just going to keep asking questions that I could just google the answer to
does algebra come from the same root as algae? why does my dog look at me when he poops?

Yes yes no yes
