Kean University Professor

Professor Terry Yung testified to the NJ State Board of Education on March 17th.
His full testimony can be seen here.  
It is almost laughable and down right embarrasing to read his testimony.
He wrote:

I found it was amazing that when the students cannot do two digit multiplication, then some teacher created “Lattice Multiplication” so that students do not need to memorize the times table.  
This is a math professor who thinks a teacher invented Lattice Multiplication.  

Well Dr. Yung, Lattice Multiplication was invented thousands of years ago by the Egyptians.  I hope Yung don't teach History of Mathematics at Kean.  It is any wonder why we DON'T want mathematicians anywhere near K-12 education.
