    Its difficult for our simple brains to pull logic from a very illogical reality.

    If we taught logic before teaching math, a lot of people would get it more quickly.

    people are bad at math because it is taught wrong.
    1. Students should be constantly tested, not counted as a grade, until they get it.
    2. The text book should explain how to do each problem, step by step.
    3. Elementary school should only focus on Reading and Math. Other courses saved for middle and high school. Just like learning a language, math is best learned at a younger age.

    We're only wired to be logical enough to not die in whatever ways were common for our ancient ancestors.

    you practice math, you like math but you're still bad at it, and despite failing at it multiple times you never lose your love for it, is this person dumb?

    Its the way math is taught in schools that is the problem. I hated math and wasn't good at it in school until after college when I was searching for easier ways to teach math to my daughter. I was blown away at how uncomplicated math actually is. In school they make it so damn frustrating. But it actually is quit easy. Look up Vedic math.

    Anyone else think that common core math is NOT for smart kids?
