Great feats didn’t come from ‘touchy-feely’ math

It obviously eludes the understanding of modern day math “reformists” that ALL of the engineering feats of the 20th century were accomplished by individuals who learned and understood basic math, i.e., addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions, percentages and their relationship to one another.

“Reform” math is the result of the feel-good, touchy-feely, know-nothing “educational” system of today. How many would be willing to take off for the moon in a rocket ship guided by “reform” math?
