I would like you to qoute to me where I said that I am against relating to
mathematics as an abstract science. I do not mean your interpretation of
what I said. I mean my words. Why is it that Tad and others understood that
I was talking about what students think. I am tired of your misconstruing
what people say. You use your interpretation of their words and then insult
them.

I also find it interesting that you have not commented on my last two
posts. They specifically address how one can, and I do, have students
relate to mathematics abstractly. Also, My "image" (your word) of students
is based on many years of interaction with them and the stories of
classroom teachers. It is not how I desire them to be and I work very hard
at getting them to expand their view of mathematics.
