For most of us, we grew up learning most of our math through rote memorization. This is often what many parents today want and expect for their children as well. They don’t understand that the idea of common core math or developing a mathematical foundation is really going to take their children so much further and make them so much more confident in their understandings of math. So many of the students today who say they are “bad at math” usually feel this way because they don’t have a deep conceptual understanding of math, but rather have just been taught some math facts that have no relevance to anything else for them.
