    I understand what you’re saying about teaching kids to think through the problem and not just memorize, but in our schools they teach the math the way you are explaining but then also give them timed tests on how many problems you can finish on timed tests (under 3 minutes) and then you get your name on the wall. If the kids aren’t memorizing the math facts, like we did, they never make it up on the wall. The teachers all make a big deal of getting your name on the math skills wall.
