Wondering What's Up with US Math Ed? Read this!!

An honest account regarding the junk taught in schools of mathematics education.
My comment: 
[The claims of the]“just in time” approach to learning, in which the tools that students need to master are dictated by the problem itself by not burdening the student's mental inventory with “mind numbing” drills for mastery of a concept or skill until it is actually needed [are not consistent with research in cognitive science]
