This Meme Might Be the Best-Ever Indictment of Math Education’s Descent

This has been ALL OVER social media the last few days and I LOVE it:Math Meme

As you can clearly see, the skills required to complete the work lessen each year. And then in 2016 math becomes about political correctness and a hyper-progressive sense of morality:

  • 1956 – Concepts, division and subtraction.
  • 1976 – Concepts and subtraction.
  • 1986 – Concepts (no mathematics).
  • 1996 – The ability to differentiate between numbers.
  • 2016 – “Correct” moral judgements.
  • 2056 – Western culture has been destroyed and taken over.

Funny, to be sure. And sad (but, at least through 2016, VERY true).


Thank you for reading and please share!
