Thank you Haim.
The West needs to discard the last 500 years of elementary (discrete) mathematics andragogies and pedagogies.
I have moved on from posting about this to writing and speaking about this. In fact, five years ago I quit the 'rat race' and sold my house so I could focus my efforts on changing elementary math pedagogies.
