Hmmm...they may or may not have a point

"Apparently, ancient cultures also used different terminology to refer to addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. They may have focused on geometric shapes different from triangles and circles. They may have called the degrees in a circle something other than degrees. And now it seems that math education—in all of its abstraction—should become culturally and socially focused away from those Westerners who coopted it."

Forget the last sentence but maybe there is something there with the first 3 sentences. My friggen math stopped at calculus 1 but perhaps there is something hidden in these ancient ways. Not to say ditch math as we know it. Also, just maybe kids that struggle with math as currently taught might adapt and thrive to the concept of shapes or other ideas. Who knows.
