Being a middle school math teacher I struggle with the results of the lack of memorization or automaticity. I know in the school I work at multiple of the teachers in the younger grades consider math their weakest and least favorite subject. I don’t think this is uncommon unfortunately. Sometimes I think I should move to the lower grades to start automaticity at the beginning rather than so many years into a child’s education.
