"Robert, I don't feel desperate. I am always on the lookout for new ideas, probably like you are in your profession. I am selfish enough to only be interested in what I see as the benefits for my students. Some of Dan's methods fit that."

Actually that is a good policy. I am that way to. I am just at a loss as to why he doesn't offer the pedagogy to develop the math. Well, actually, I guess I am not at a loss because I gave my reason why. You are probably aware of this, though the rest might not be, Dan doesn't teach any longer (since last year), he is going to Stanford for his doctorate in education (the Haim conjecture holds). He discovered the secret of teaching and then stopped teaching. Imagine that. What was the title of this thread again?:)
