    No wonder she’ll fail.

    So would I — Linus’s explanation went right over MY head, and I was around when New Math was being taught!

    Relabelling something doesn’t help you understand it, it just confuses things.

    Fwd: and I was beeing taught how to teach the New Math at the college I went to, but I failed that course. Thankfully you can not blame me for the headache! I stayed with science.

    Linus’s explanation is perfectly clear to a mathematical thinker. The problem is, most people are mathematally illerate, I.e. those who play the lottery expecting to win.

    I shudder when I hear that some people’s majors were in math & statistics. I worked with a guy who actually liked doing calculus problems.

    And some of us just aren’t mathematically inclined — language is where I dominate, for example!

    If you want to be expressive use New Math, if you want your answers to be correct, and, most importantly, understood, use old math.

    She makes a good point. His instructions are a bit long.
