In the long run yes, I want students to memorize certain things. I’m always torn when a middle or high schooler does not know them and they are letting it hold themselves back mentally. I think it is a great point that we memorize things that have no reference to them. I never thought about the alphabet being an order that has no reason to be that order, but numbers are in that order for a reason.
