Thank you, Rhett Allain
I really believe that society just allows people to be bad at math. It is socially acceptable for adults to say “but I never got through Algebra.” That is a confession of math illiteracy. But adults never say “wow, reading, that is so hard! I don’t read.” Math illiteracy is socially ok but language illiteracy is not socially ok. Really, there should not be a difference. Let’s do what we can to change it.
