It's time to learn science the Bloomberg way. That's when Mr. Bloomberg puts down his jewel-encrusted cane, declares everyone must teach science this way, there is no other way anyone can teach science, and then spends 80 million bucks on a computer to determine that no one is teaching science correctly. Since Mr. Bloomberg has already worked his magic on other disciplines, it must be valid.
For example, Mr. Bloomberg has already come up with a fantastic curriculum for elementary school kids called Everyday Math. Instructivist (Thank you!) posted a video explaining how that works, and I'm gonna share it with you.
Sure, it may seem more complicated than the way you and I learned. But if Mr, Bloomberg says it's better, it must be. Math must be taught this way. There is no other possible way kids can learn math. If it isn't working, the only possibility is that the teachers are no good, and that's not Mr. Bloomberg's fault either, even though he hires them and grants them tenure.
So make some popcorn, sit back, and learn some math the way Mr. Bloomberg says you must. Remember, there is no other possible way to learn math (unless Mr. Bloomberg says so).
