I really appreciate your discussion of memorization versus automaticity. I had heard for a long time of the different methods students were learning in elementary school for addition, multiplication, etc., and had only heard how foreign they were. I’d also heard from parents who were frustrated at their inability to help their kids. Only just last year did they start showing us at the high school level these new conceptual ways of understanding the principles, and I really like them! I wish I knew more about them.
