Math education needs to find its path again. Elementary school can be shapes and finding equations in geometry. Junior high school can be algebra and trigonometry. High school can be about sequencing numbers leading to calculus in senior year. It doesn't matter how fun you make formulas out to be, WE DON'T KNOW WHERE THEY CAME FROM!
