Something tells me a T.J. Blaxx is about to open up around the corner.

I thank god I was never taught this way. I'm really good at math, ended up taking BC Calculus in high-school and aced the AP test on it. This problem I can do in my head in 2 seconds. If I had been taught that garbage on the left I don't think I ever would have learned how to do math in my head quickly. It's just garbage and I really don't get how that teaches kids anything.

Most kids have, what, 50 minutes to complete a math test? How many questions are you gonna have time to answer using this method?
