>“Inventing procedures involves solving problems that the students do not already know how to solve, so they gain valuable experience with non-routine problems. They must learn to manage their resources: How long will this take? Am I wasting my time with this approach? Is there a better way? Such resource management is especially important in complex problem solving. As students devise their own methods, they also develop persistence and confidence in dealing with difficult problems.”

I don’t know about any of you, but as bright as my kids are, and I’m sure yours are too, complex resource management and character development, all while trying to learn math, seems over the top for just about any kid.
