No, there really isn't. With teachers that have been tasked to teach every living soul algebra, there is disagreement, and I can understand that. They have been thrust into bizzaro world. But when you get to the places where all of this stuff bears fruit, there isn't a lot of debate. As I said earlier, the sequence and order is just natural. You are good at these things, or you are not good at these things. Too bad for all those children who were not good at these things but were good at other things. Too bad indeed.
