We're going through a similar situation in Raleigh, NC, U.S.A. I support our parents advocating for a change in Canada. I hope they find success in bringing sound methods and materials back to school so all children can reach their fullest potential. Constructivism isn't working.

I love math, but I hate math class. The way it is currently taught turns students away from what could be an amazing field

I'm signing because the current method of trying to get little children to think abstractly goes DIRECTLY AGAINST the well-researched 4 stages of cognitive development of Jean Piaget. School children are in the "concrete operationl stage" for the most part and do far better with clear structured learning.

I am signing because I understand the importance of a solid foundation in math skills and concepts. For students to be successful in high school courses and post secondary programs they need a solid foundation in math. Without this foundation many careers are out of reach for students and our economy will suffer as a result.

Internationally our kids are behind in math skills. Canada used to rate higher when compared with other countries. When the Ministry of Education Changes the math curriculum our kids are lost and cannot understand basic math. Basic math skills must be taught. Young children should have confidence not confusion.

It's vital to our childrens' future success and prospective careers. Enough already, the scores continue to decline...you make a mistake now "fix it!"
