      That is just bizarre. One commenter suggested the methods might be geared toward more complex problems where numbers do not represent real things, but concepts; but I just can’t see that, either. But then, I’ve never been good at math and was always afraid of it. Whatever the case, I would have dropped out of school in Grade Three if I’d had to learn this way. It makes math problems ten times more complicated than they need to be, and every time you introduce another step you introduce another possibility of making a mistake.

        Very true ! I am pretty good in math but this is still too much artificially introduced complexity for me too. Still it would be a perfect way to work with roman numbers. And that’s BTW why Arabic notation is so much superior.

        What a bunch of morons !!!
