It is misplaced for the It's not that the idea is wrong in principle. But with We should be helping students to see that the power of algebra is that is gives us the means of solving problems that we would have great difficulty solving arithmetically. This kind of thinking can certainly lead to nonsense, usually when a Mathematical model of a Physical thing is conflated with the thing itself, ie. Mar 10, 2014 - Researchers now challenge the most recent advances in this field, using a classic mathematical concept to tackle the outstanding problems in big data analysis. More advanced alien civilization living in Omega Centauri has already solved, for instance, their metabolic syndrome and counteraffects of ageing, integrated successfully with their quantum computing power, essentially have achieved a form of immortality. Sorry, I included the wrong link. Since models are constructed by induction, they are necessarily incomplete; if all light emitted after 2015 is blue, reality isn't wrong: Maxwell's equations . Nov 4, 2013 - Broadly speaking, I think most of the furor about K-12 mathematics curricula that seems to bedevil every western country except Finland is totally misplaced. Apr 2, 2014 - They wanted to open up to students the excitement of really grappling with problem solving and mathematical thinking, as opposed to merely asking them to follow standardized solutions closely tied to procedural goals rather than mathematical thinking.
