The VA SOL, see a previous blog post, already require for grade K that understand and can write equations like

5 = 4 + 1

So it is just a step backwards in fact to require

5 = 4′.

The equation 1 = 0′ is an iconic equation. It can stand for the creation of the universe. From nothing the one.

Math has a power of inspiration, but only if we emphasize the vision. The vision is internal not applications. Vision and works are needed. Vision inspires. Without vision, works become drills.
