[QUOTE]Originally posted by Munchkin Man: [QB] [QUOTE]Originally posted by bdgee: [qb] Conformaty does not breed comprehension, it obliterates it. [/qb][/QUOTE]_____ You have regurgitated yet another myth from the liberal wing of educational thought. Nothing could be further from the truth. Conformity to following the essential and sequential steps to any given arithmetical algorithm or mathematical procedure is absolutely essential to the mastery of that algorighm or procedure. Once you know how to do it and do it well, your comprehension has been achieved. You're "there." Doing is understanding. The Munchkin Man believes in teaching the "how" before the "why." Once the student learns and masters the "how", the "why" begins to fall into place. With proper follow-up instruction, the "why" begins to open up for the student like the petals of a rose. Contrary to what you say, conformity does not obliterate comprehension. Conformity is an essential and necessary prerequisite for comprehension. It is non-conformity which is a barrier to comprehension and mastery. The Munchkin Man has spoken. Please think on these things. Best Wishes, Munchkin Man [/QB][/QUOTE]
