I sometimes feel like the media’s presentation of the 2 distinct groups of math teachers helps fuel teachers that are mostly focused on memorization that a deep understanding of concepts. At the beginning of my career I was more focused on memorization I came to discover. Many of my students performed well because they answered only questions that were familiar to them. Questions that were unfamiliar were often not tried by students.
