Rod Maker - 4/15/2019 20:42 But then why of the student does it the normal way it is counted wrong because they didn't use box method? I understand teaching concepts like this, but counting problems wrong when the answer is figured a different way is demoralizing. Also watching your kid use box method do figure 215÷5 is punishment.
If a kid is a math savant, and always gets the right answer should that student still have to show the "work"?
