i get that might be slightly easier for small children but it is completely useless in the long run

Which is these kinds of things are used to teach the concept to small children so that they understand it, instead of just knowing how to do it.

I could teach you that the derivative of x^5 is 5x^4, but that doesn't mean you understand what just went on or how to use it.

except you're teaching kids to break problems down into smaller parts
which means they need to keep track of more numbers

they just broke a two digit problem into four parts

that's not how you teach someone to solve problems in their head because most people can only keep track of about five steps

Say you have 96 - 34, your goal is to add numbers to 34 to get to 96 (which would be the difference between the two).

Start with 34 and add 6 to get to 40 (easy number to deal with)
Add another 50 and you are at 90
Add another 6 and you get 96
Now sum the numbers you added to 34 which is 6 + 50 = 56 + 6 = 62. Difference between 34 and 96 = 62.

Still a really stupid way of doing it and the regular way would be a lot faster imo...

Thanks for explaining

wow I actually get it now. It's still fucking stupid but I can imagine it might help those that have trouble understanding how substactions work

I don't understand at all. Is he literally just adding random amounts until he reaches 32 from 12? Where do the 3, 5, 10 and 2 come from? Or is he made to go to the closest multiple of 5 first and then continue in 10's?
User avatar
#40 - kirkbot (12/06/2015) [-]
not exactly random amounts, but amounts to make numbers that are easier to add. Like you said 5s, 10s, etc
#38 - micekill (12/06/2015) [-]
you could think of just adding the smalles easiest numbers you can use, like just add five to 12 until you reach 32 then add the fives together and get 20
pretty much just fragmentating and complicating an already easy problem
