@mistymaity There are SO many steps to all of it! That's why I think we forget it. And unless we need to use it all again, we will replace that area of knowledge with what we DO need to use on regular basis.
@mistymaity Yes ma'am. I think about this a lot, since I homeschool my son. We (parents) even take classes - mostly online - about how to teach to make sure our students maintain information.
I wish a couple of my high school teachers had taken these classes, too... (***Please, nobody throw anything at me!!***) Because the one and only B I ever made was in my very last math class senior year! Don't even ask me how to do Integral/Linear Calculus and Differential Equations now. :'( I freaking hate math.
