Without The Accompanying Teaching...
Wed Feb 22, 2017 11:35am (XFF: can make anything look difficult and complicated. As the video you posted points out, if you are trying to teach math, merely showing someone the example you offer in the first picture as "this is math" without any explanation would certainly not make ANY sense.

The key lies in the the fact that the kids are being taught to understand the relationships between numbers, and they are being taught to understand the processes that happen as operations.

I will tell you a secret. Those of us who excelled at math, who got straight A's and never had to work at it, we figured these things out for ourselves. We developed an intuitive grasp of these processes and relationships. Those who always struggled might have done better if they had had the benefit of Common Core, because Common Core helps the students learn those aspects of math.

So, to answer your question, YES, I am telling you that Common Core strategies are better than traditional strategies.

            ... you have a hissy fit. But when you are shown to be in error, you say "It is simply too early to tell". You are so damn predictable.
