    “Knowledge of school mathematics (Public Schools) is very much like a building: If a foundation or a piece of a lower floor is missing, the building cannot stand. For example, long division requires multiplication and subtraction skills. If a child struggles with multiplication and subtraction, long division will be very difficult.”

    The Value of Learning Science (STEM – the acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics + Arts) :
