Subject: The change in emphasis and methods of teaching math

In teaching, the emphasis is now on the teaching of mental strategies and practical experiences with less emphasis on recording, particularly in the early years! Why has this change come about? Can you give reasons for the change in emphasis and methods advocated to improve the standards of teaching and learning in mathematics, particularly numbers!?
