Does our approach to teaching math fail even the smartest kids?

This article point out the importance of problem solving.

This article is not on the Common Core directly. However, I think it is related. If we teach the CCSSM correctly (including the Mathematical Practices) I think are students will be better problem solvers – and therefore better off mathematically and better prepared for the STEM fields and life, in general.

I love the quote,

“They were never taught how to read a map, or even that there is a map.”
