The harm of the typical math curriculum

Consider what music or painting would look like if we treat it like the typical math curriculum.

  • What if music education was all about theory, dots and lines that make up the language of music? What if playing and listening to music was put off until college?
  • Or, what if art students had to spend years only studying paints and brushes? Then they do pre-paint-by numbers to prepare them for the main paint-by number sequence. From there, only the students who know their colours and brushes get to actually paint.
