How should Maths be taught?

Re: How should Maths be taught?
I agree with this but only partially
because if the situation is realistic then calculating without a computer is only a waste of time. however since u wouldnt be carrying a computer around everywhere u go, i think that maths should be split into 2 sections, mental maths where the aim is to develop stundents' skills of working equations out without the use of calculators, and computer maths where the math is based on realistic situations.

I also agree with this way of teaching. I believe that this education is stronger because from my understanding of this video is that when the learning is independent as mentioned in the video I think the knowledge obsorbed by the individual will be more effective because what the idividual learns has been learnt through themselves therefore enabling the student to be more confident. This way of learning is important because it relates to realistic problems whih are more affetive and make a bigger impact on the student .
I totally agree with Mr.Wolfram and his way of teaching and i hope it is adapted in my school and many others

Re: How should Maths be taught?
I kinda agree with the guy.... I think that the idea could be really revolutionary, and it could teach students how to cope with maths in the real world after they leave school. But, in reality I don't think that the idea could work. Examiners don't care if you can solve real world equations, only what kind of math skills you can do. Besides the current system doesn't allow students to practice realworld maths.
