Can bright lolis really do calculus in Japanese elementary school? No wonder America is falling behind in education.
Normally, yes. In the 50's in France 10 year old girls was all able to do it. That + speaking perfect german. Also, all girl schools. Good old times.
Why isn't there any "cute girls doing advanced math" anime?
You're lying. This isn't real.
Didn't Euler make a more general formula of feman using the phi function?
a^phi(m) = 1 in Z(m) if and only if a and m is relativly prime?
Holy fuck I still remember this shit. Unless I'm way off track.
Is...Is this for real? People are pretty mad around here with the new ''reform'', but its nowhere near this. No wonder americlaps hate this common core shit
People make a big deal out of Common Core Math, but all it's really doing is trying to teach idiots how smart people do math. Which is obviously not gonna work.
A better example would be 8+5=13. Some people have trouble seeing this, like I did way back in kindergarten. So I just broke it up into 3+5+5=13, which is easier since 5+5 comes out as 10 insanely fast in my mind and then I just tack on the 3.
Written out on paper, it's obviously gonna look dumb. But these weird operations come out super fast in the mind. CC just tries to make a habit out of making those weird operations so they can be applied to more complex problems.
I'm not advocating it at all, as I said before this is obviously gonna fail.
Well I said new but it's actually like 10 years old , province of Québec, Canada. We use a different system than the rest of Canada for highschool etc, but I'm unsure about ''the way we learn''
Yeah, but why not start with that earlier. Basic calc (I'm talking straight forward differentiation and integration along the lines of f(x) = x^n) is as easy as algebra, the concepts are not even difficult.
Here in America the standards have been lowered incredibly far, to the point where teachers are forced to pass a certain amount of students or they lose their job.
This is also the reason why most jobs require college now, because modern college is the equivalent of high-school 60 years ago.
This shit is ruining America
It's as easy as algebra if all you're teaching students to do is naively carry out the process without understanding what they're doing, but I don't consider that a useful way to learn.
yes, but you don't need it, you only need the binomial theorem
(1+ n)^p = n^p + p n^(p-1) + (p choose 2) n^(p-2) +... + (p choose p-2) n ^2 + p n + 1
you subtract the summands that aren't divisible by p, and the other are divisible by p since p is prime and remains as a factor in each binomial coefficient.
No one would ever do the bottom one unless you force them to.
>10 years old
That's quite old, but the reforms are usually considered shit by most people, the reform in Poland was really shit because they had redesigned the high-school certificate exam, but they didn't give any information about how is it going to look like until you were in the second year (the law says that they should reveal it while you're in your first year)
It's really fucking pointless to teach them that when they could do nothing beyond the absolute most basic problems of calculus.
Like REALLY pointless. Have you taken a physics course without taking calc? It's like that, fundamentally a waste of time.
>why is it a problem that we are lowering the standards and creating a nation of retards
supporting a ridged and standardized form of education is harmful to the future of any society, saying "some people aren't smart" is nothing more than a deflection from the actual issue
Nothing, but the way schools teach STEM subjects is fucktarded and doesn't help students understand how anything works, so as soon as they encounter a problem that can't be solved with a memorised process most of them can't cope.
All school level maths in western countries teaches students to do is solve problems that they have been shown how to solve.
See this is why I hate common core currently. The simple fact of the matter is that schools currently work on the assumption that all students are created equal and that they all have the same needs upon graduation, which is just flat out wrong and naive, and common core exasperates this. What we should be doing with schools is giving everyone a solid foundation of math, science, and language in primary, then using secondary school to figure out what the kids are good at, what they think they're good at, and what they want to do after school, and tailor their entire secondary schooling experience after those criteria.
Stop reminding me that I'm a fucking idiot.
I can understand why you would use this kind of thinking to teach kids that they can add something together one bit at the time without changing the result. I can also see it being useful as a trick to make mental addition easier.
But why would you teach kids this as a way to tackle the problem in writing. Is the new problem that the old problem is being translated to actually easier?
Don't worry, you're not alone. I have no idea what the fuck people are talking about in these kinds of threads but I find them fascinating regardless.
fuck this shit I didnt sign up for numbers and shit
when talking about this to the oldest generations (70 & up) this apparently resembles a method employed back before the industrial revolution.
Henry Fords thoughts on education focused on simple, efficient, and just enough to be useful in the business world. and he had the influence to change the educational system to fit his views. that was the method we all learned growing up since the industrial revolution.
this new common core approach to math seems to hearken back to what we had before that.
Euros are stupid. They can speak more than one language, but that's not intelligence since a child's capacity for language is completely infinite before the age of 7. In chemistry or physics - the shit that actually MATTERS - they have about the same level of education as a cocker spaniel.
Ditto for Nips. Do you realize a 30 is passing over there? A FUCKING 30?
The purpose of common core was to expose students to abstract ideas early on to escape "drilling" and repetitive calculations.
In reality all it did was create children that know set theory but can't do arithmetic (future engineers).
>Is the new problem that the old problem is being translated to actually easier?
I don't think its supposed to be about ease, its about ensuring kids have a better grasp of number theory so they don't grow up to be fucktarded adults.
nigga STEM is about the smartest you are going to get. Math wont be much better and any alpha study will be abhorrent.
And then you dont even consider the bulk who cant even handle that level
>Kerry didn't know her in that world
We don't know that, but we do know that the Shirou from Miyu's world was adopted by Kerry and I don't see why would he just adopt Shirou and not Miyu.
You have no idea how hardcore private schools can get. Especially ones in Germany that's preparing entrants to research universities.
