answer questions that wouldn't be easy to answer otherwise?
… maybe because it is possible to learn about algorithmic thinking while doing
it?
… maybe because it is a way to understand that rational numbers are either
finite or periodic when written as decimal fractions?
Just some thoughts. It is always easy to complain about certain subject areas,
but there might be reasons for them that are not easily visible. Also, I am
quite sure that it is possible to use a completely different curriculum for
mathematics, but that would require a lot of teacher training… probably an
evolutionary approach is more appropriate.
