A friend of mine, a real teacher, once told me the difference between a teacher and an educator. A teacher takes a complex subject and makes it understandable. An educator takes a simple subject and makes it incomprehensible.
That alone deserves its own post! Thanks Chaps.
Such a silly and unnecessary tortuous explanation for so simple and straightforward an operation, one can only imagine the convoluted process involved in long division or worse, finding a cube root.It's a mindless Rube Goldburg approach to simple arithmetic, a sure fire prescription for introducing confusion and fostering levels of boredom sufficient to prevent learning.
RL - agreed. "one can only imagine the convoluted process involved in . . ."Teaching American history?
