Math: Here is Why You Don’t Need to Teach it

By: Krystle Crossman

One of the most stressful subjects for home-school parents and students alike is math. It can be frustrating and can be the cause of some big fights between you and your child. So why bother? Do you really need to teach math? The simple fact is that you really do not need to spend that much time on math. Here are five reasons why:

1. Kids that are good at math will pick up on it whether they spend a lot of time with it or not. They will want to learn at their own pace. This causes them to figure out problems on their own. There was a 16 year-old that figured out how to solve math problems that were 350 years-old. His parents didn’t teach him how to do that. He went off on his own and figured out some very hard problems.

2. Math teaches kids how to think in a new way. If you teach them to learn one problem and memorize that formula over and over they will not learn how to critically think. Let them figure out how to solve the problem on their own so that they can find new ways of thinking critically.

    Terrible advice! This is why Black children are last in the STEM area. If MATH was something that couldn’t or didn’t need to be taught then most Asians wouldn’t be good at it. Black people and Black children are not in the soci-economic position to allow Black students to receive precarious academic training. Black students need to be disciplined to learn up to the advanced levels of Math and Science.

    I can agree with this post to an extent. There is always a stepping stone for these things.
    Some teachers take advantage of the teach yourself strategy to the point that they don’t learn.

    What is the difference between a good teacher and a bad teacher?

    A bad teacher makes an easy subject hard.
    A good teacher makes a hard subject easy.

    For, the good teacher always uses the best methods, while the bad teacher doesn’t.

    Please click this link and see 5 and 6-year old kindergarten students having fun solving Algebra word problems (you might need to copy and paste it):

    Please excuse the misspelled word “Kindergarten” on the youtube page. The foreign technician accidentally misspelled it, and I don’t know how to change it. Thanks

    This so-called advice sounds silly. It’s not even supported by great examples or studies. Not only does math need to be taught, but no child can figure out advanced math WITHOUT formulas!! Heck after you have them, you will still need to critically think. What are they supposed to do? Dream them up? Well guess what? If they aren’t taught, they just won’t think about math at all….Let alone learn at their own pace.

    Math is a subject that should be important and inclusive in a positive way, to any school or home school group. The comments were meaningless and uninformative. Some words should not written or spoken if the intended party lacks information.

    You can’t get a GED without passing Math so you need to be taught, not everyone will be naturally good at it. Did a white fool write this article to keep our kids down and uneducated or an uncle Tom negro? We have to do whatever necessary to give our kids an added advantage to compete with the white kids who have all the access without education so this article is just ignorant.
