Exactly.

Lou won that debate for sure.

Look around you: animation. Keith Devlin is on the right track in wanting
to link film to delta calc.

Each frame of film is a tiny piece of the action, a delta, and summed, you
see energy being spent.

action/time = mvd/t = E = hf (energy is a function of frequency isn't it).
E/t = power (like watts).

In addition to sheer competence, the students are learning "how things
work", an aspect of education routinely neglected.

Kids use the Internet every day, yet know nothing about how it works?
Crazy.

Learning to program ('code') is exactly the same thing as learning
'algorithms' yet the former is CS and the latter is math?

Again, crazy.

(I'm a co-teacher as two teachers per classroom is considered normative
these days)
