To a huge part of the society, mathematics means applying standard techniques that one has learned in school or college to solve well defined problems which has a well-defined right answer. Today’s parent’s main focus in mathematics is mastery of a collection of standard procedures for solving well-defined problems that have unique right answers. You can’t blame their thought process as that is how they have come up in life and that is their interpretation of mathematics and up until the end of the 19th Century. Learning mathematics had been that way for several thousand years and Math textbooks were essentially recipe books. But with the unprecedented rise of the modern science and technology the need for understanding mathematics started to change and these recipe books have shrunk to coded devices which we carry in our pockets. No longer is arithmetic as important as logic and reasoning on when and where to imply it.
