They don't "teach" math in unschooling

At some point, the kid becomes aware of multiplication's benefits and simply decides to go learn it on their own. (That's how everything is taught under this program.) The result is overwhelmingly unanimous graduation with a better education by an average of 15 years old.

The difference is that since the child is now eager to learn it and has numerous applications for said knowledge, they average learning topics at double the comprehension and 10-20% of the time investment. I remember one story where the kid didn't decide to learn even basic math until age 10, but then went on to enroll in a college level math degree program by age 14.

I bet that would be a tragedy for these types.
