I heard about this math stupidity on Sky last night. The future isn’t too bright if these people continue to control.
‘Insanity Wrap was never a big fan of math class back in the day.
We weren’t necessarily bad at it, you see, it’s just that we understood math well enough to understand that the whole thing was stacked against us.
Every problem had exactly one correct answer and an infinite number of incorrect answers. It doesn’t take a math whiz to understand that ∞:1 is not good odds.
Worse than our youthful dismissiveness towards mathematics is the trendy Matrix-like insistence that there is no math. Or to be more precise, that math is white supremacy, white supremacy is bad, and therefore the very concept of One Correct Answer must be memory-holed like a statue of Lincoln.
Never you mind, gentle reader, that many of our best math students are East Asian or Jewish. Both groups have achieved Dishonorary Whiteness on the Woke Victimhood Pecking Order, because reasons.
If you think Insanity Wrap is exaggerating, wait until you see the “learning” materials being foisted upon “educators” by an organization called Equitable Math.
We spent far too much time reading their materials today, but if you’re interested in giving them a glance then here’s a link to the PDF file.
This bit is particularly amusing, or would be if it weren’t so dangerous:
Study the purpose of math education, and re-envision it. Schooling as we know it began during the industrial revolution, when precision and accuracy were highly valued. What are the myriad ways we can conceptualize mathematics in today’s world and beyond?
Today we build little four-banger car engines that produce more than 300 horsepower, reusable rockets, entire constellations of communications satellites operating in every imaginable orbit, and stealth jet fighters that lose their near-invisibility if a single element is slightly out of whack.
But no, this modern age of ours no longer values precision or accuracy.’
