Seriously, as one educated man wrote: "What kind of math hell is this?"
Those who do not know their times tables, cannot invent a solution. The further behind they get, the worse students they become.
They cannot comprehend that the 'correct' answer is:
106 ÷ 5 = 32
Some said: 160/30 with a remainder of 10.
Is this ridiculous or not? It boils down to when one should use division, regrouping, and why. Not creating ways to solve math problems.
Education Minister Liz Sandals said Wednesday the province will help pay for more current teachers to take advanced qualifications courses in math. It will also make sure people in the new two-year teachers’ college program spend more time learning to teach math.
