Maths education is not the only problem. I am just focusing my efforts to improve how people should feel about maths. Maths should be recognized as being a culture. Mathematicians and scientists are humans too, what they create contributes to human culture. Also, people should appreciate math. I think the constant studying of how to get the answers is destroys any opportunity of appreciation because they just want to it get over with (pass the exam). If people learn foreign languages best by immersion and constant usage (application), math should be no exception. That's why I think exams makes our current system backwards. To much time is wasted on studying solutions, and reviewing the subject over and over. Instead, if people sat down and chat about it, perhaps, the knowledge will sink in (through experience) and people can move on investigating new topics. If algebra has become second nature, there is no need for reviewing algebra every year.
