Everyone’s a math person

I just read this article in WIRED in response to math to students majoring in elementary school education.

Quit Saying ‘I’m Just Not a Math Person’ | WIRED.

People end up doing math all the time, whether they realize it or not.  The author of the WIRED post, Rhett Allain, ends by saying that not only should math be taught in all grade levels, but programming should be taught at (nearly) all grade levels as well.  As we see a growing market for coding tutorials aimed at kids, I bet we’ll see programming become a meaningful part of elementary education.
