    • As a math major, these posts really bug me. I gurantee you, you do not know enough math about anything (quite literally, anything) to make your own adjustments at a high school level. Stop complaining and learn how to properly explaing your answers. It’s really not that hard, you’re just lazy.

    • Any of you go to college? The reason you learn to do elementary matg one way versus the other is because higher level maths require elementary math to be performed a certain way in order for the equations to work properly. Not to say you cant do it the other way. It just makes it harder on you later

    • Usually they do this when the topic is meant as a building block or is an important part for a more complicated topic. All math builds on itself. Sometimes finding the best method for the current tooic is not the goal but instead is meant to prepare you to be able to do something else.

    • Do whatever you want in high school, Hell don't even take Calculus during it if you don't wanna. Every high school is different and some have dumber practices than other. If you can, look into dual credit courses as well as practice for the ACT or SAT, otherwise nothing else really matters.
