In the U.S. we're currently suffering through "Common Core" teaching methods (I'll leave it to you to google "Common Core".

Most of you remember the way we were taught to do subtraction:

 32
-12
___
 20

This is the way Common Core teaches the same problem:

12 + 3  = 15
15 + 5  = 20
20 + 10 = 30
30 + 2  = 32
    ____
     20

I understand how they got there, but I DON'T understand how that's a better way to do it. WTF | :WTF:

Maybe it's because a minus sign promotes negative thoughts about math...
