- Just saw a maths site that says about algebra:
"the 1st thing to do is clear your |
head of the idea that it relates
to real life in any way"!
I should blog about this, hence this page.
- OK, here's the rest of the 'explanation' about algebra. Might take a few tweets.
- "learn some basic rules and accept that you may be none the wiser after getting 10 questions correct"
- "you will then go on to be very successful"
- "in fact, algebra does relate to real life in many ways" (and now for the killer punch...)
- "but if you worry too much about the point of it all, it will just bog you down in a world of confusion"
