Our need to always focus on ourselves kills us in math ed

Everything has to be about us, and math is not about us.  Thus in math ed, we either tell stories and pretend to teach or we teach drills so at least we can be active.   The actual explanations of the math don’t register.

We have to have drills that teach the concepts despite resistance.   These work by tying the structure together, not in being random drills that seem unrelated to each other.
