  •  I am a former math teacher who went into (3+ / 0-)

    computers and retired after 30 years.

    Then I became a substitute math teacher in Plano, TX, because I heard they needed math teachers.

    I taught high school algebra, which I had done many years before.

    When we came to the point in the class where we learned to develop formulas from data points we stopped. I couldn't believe it. The administration said that we should use calculators.

    Might and Right are always fighting, in our youth it seems exciting. Right is always nearly winning, Might can hardly keep from grinning.
