There will be things which are going to make learning that much easier. Some of the worst subjects for students in performance terms are things related to mathematics. These include all subjects which needs calculations for anything more complex than the triangle although this is also complex enough for many.
The curricula for schools are not actually that hard to figure out or hard to learn from. Best math curriculum however may have some edge over the stodgy old ones that still make long calculations and not use apps. In fact, human nature may not really be attuned to calculations like these and in fact aberrant personalities often made amazing discoveries about these.
Amazing should be put in quotes here because these systems may sound amazing and abstruse but are actually better served by shortcuts today. All these had to be discovered first though and for these we all owe those aberrant personalities called geniuses. They were mathematically inclined but often dealt with the occult and math only came second in their priorities.
Be that as it may, humanity for better or for worse, has had progress in mathematics. All this progress has made the curriculum that much harder everywhere where match is concerned. Today though there are apps and calculators which will shorten and make all these easier, but the question remains whether the long process is still significant.
Not all individuals are born calculators, in fact there is little enough of these, classified as geeks or nerds. They will often have more time for the equations than for ordinary living. While on a genius level often, they are not socially inclined and are actually maladjusted personalities who may even have hints of autism.
That is why psychologists and sociologists and even curriculum makers in the academe are wondering whether the more complex processes should be explained in simpler terms. The exercises too could be helped along not only by calculators but by apps. This is to integrate more modern means of arriving at solutions, which are connected to online resources.
Time is something that should be more useful for pupils then. And there is no daunting prospect of math subjectswhich will usually not be in use in the later years when employed. In fact, even accountants will not need the complex equations which will really be useful for professionals like physicists, which in industrial needs number only a very small fraction.
Thus the more complex subjects should be reserved for specialists. These are in fact getting smaller in number as apps progress, and these could actually be replaced by theorists or analysts in this line. The accountants still matter a lot but these should have their priorities rethought by the academe.
The future is not clear about what it holds but automation will certainly be in it. Automation has produced so much in terms of complex math and thus the educational frontiers should move on. Again, there is no need to burden students with items that may not be using in the future or need to make use of at all.
