Math : LUSENET : Sleeptalking : One Thread

In today's entry, I posted an example of a new way of addition that has some proponents and detractors. What do you think? Is the so-called "new math" easier for you? I'm curious - and feel free to post url's if you can find any about this "movement." I couldn't find much, though granted I didn't really look very hard.

Are You Kidding?

"New" math? "Old" math? I still count with my fingers. [Seriously!] And with my toes, and with any other available body parts, if need be. [Waitresses LOVE me: last week I accidentally left a 65% tip for a five dollar mushroom omelet.]
