This graphic helps show what so many are trying to say. I am twenty-five years into my public school education gig and our system of trying to do/teach TOO many things...well it isn't working. If children don't have "peak" experiences with numbers in the primary years--they are essentially lost. We've got to focus people! Sign in to vote! Posted 11/3/2012 2:38pm ChipNBoard certified STEM HS teacher I teach remedial high school and night trades school math, primarily. What Christi said. 85% of G1-6 teacher are women with low proficiency in math and numbers theory. That's just a simple fact. The are wonderful teachers, but can only 'teach to the text' in math, which is colossally boring to students, who need imaginative framing and immediate correctional feedback to acquire. By the time they get to HS, there is an elite cadre of math performers who will settle quickly and pop out calculus problems all period, however they acquired that skill, ...and the rest are 24 miles behind, just like in a marathon, just like in life. It's too late by HS for STEM. The conclusion is undeniable and irredeemable. We don't need more STEM HS teachers! We need greater math fluency in our teachers at elementary and especially MS levels, but because students are elementary - MS in their mental development, we need imaginative STEM skills at the appropriate grade equivalent, NOT mass rote learning, not South Korea.
