Is Common-Core Math Leading to More Memorization Than Intended?

Is Common-Core Math Leading to More Memorization Than Intended? | Mathematics,Science Resources And News | Scoop.it
Common-core math aims to have students do less memorizing—but it's being misinterpreted to have students do more, argues a math education professor.
White Group Mathematics's insight:

IMHO memorization at times is a necessary evil, and might have to preceded the phase of understanding what is actually going on. The key is not to memorize blindly. Peace.
