Math Gone Wild

Maybe it's just because I'm old, but this "new math" just seems stupidly wrong as illustrated in this clip.

I find this as yet another example of "change for the sake of change" that seems so prevalent in schools these days.  About the only thing I find better is the insistence on teaching to pass "the test".  Forget critical thinking, it's all about passing the standardized test.
