RE: FW: Education - Math & Science Appropriations II

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
One thing I've found kind of amusing with my Fifth Grade daughter's math
assignments, is that they are taught to solve certain problems "only one
way." Therefore, if I solve, say, a division problem "my way" in showing my
daughter how to do it, and she takes the homework assignment back to her
teacher, her teacher is puzzled. "You did it wrong," she'll say, "but you
got the right answer, so I'm not sure how to grade it."

I think teachers here should have more training in science and math.
