Right on Aatu. Freedom must be taken; it cannot be given.
Some of the descriptions of function presume the given quality.
Some functions remain unknown, and it is these which are the ones we
should be chasing after. So I like physics, but want clean math. The
issue of dimensional quality within the concept of function may
actually be an open area, one where the sixth grader might relate more
to the free path of a pencil over a piece of paper than a one
dimensional quality. Reality seems to take three dimensions to reach
functional modeling. Then there is the timebased version of reasoning,
and somewhere around here the issue of the unknown function can creep
back in. If a pencil keeps tracing the path of a circle on the paper
eventually the owner will fall asleep and the line will wander a bit.
Anyway, somewhere around here is where I would suggest the proper
sixth grade introduction lays; in a more complex form rather than an
oversimplified form. Then breaking that down to the simplest case
should get to the standard function.
