Interesting article, it makes sense because alot of math is really just understanding and common sense.

Yay calculus!

I think they should do the same experiments but with middle school aged kids. if they do well, can we cut calculus from required curriculum and fill it with something useful to everyone and that we actually DON`T learn by trial and error?

Ooor that this particular equation is programed into us at birth and it`s disguised at "human instinct", thus proving the teachings of Socrates in which he believed we knew everything at birth and we spent our life accessing this information with each "lesson learned"...

I like the lazy idea better.
