**Math Education An Inconvenient**
They pushed this crap on my son from 2nd grade to 4th, and its as horrible as shown in the video. He didn't grasp the algorithms and we couldn't be much help to him at home because we didn't understand it. They dropped Everyday Mathematics last year and they were teaching normal algorithms again, but it was what I call popcorn math. Rather than sticking with one topic say long division, starting easy and getting a little harder with each page till they master it then move on to a different topic, what they do is a page of long division, a page of fractions, geometry, multiplication, and so on not coming back to long division until after they forgot how to do it.

This year in 6th grade they are taking college-prep Algebra, which is also taught popcorn style, not allowing them to master anything.
