    I definitely agree with you about the technology, but my problem with not teaching math is that we need to make the connections and the conceptual understanding.  I think you are looking at it from the stand and deliver and just know the procedures the teacher wants you to.  I believe we need to teach for understanding and not just the things you can put into a computer.  We also need to think about what a mathematician and problem solver would do.  Maybe the question isn’t why teach math in 2019, but “How should we teach math in 2019?”
