I haven't looked at this list for a couple of years. I guess I
really didn't need to because when I opened up the postings I had
missed, I usually knew what the posting would say just by reading the
name of the poster.

But I have to confess that I was not ready for the lies Wayne Bishop
posted about Calculus&Mathematica attributed to a nameless source in
The Illinois mathematics department. Bishop announced the failure of
Calculus&Mathematica at Illinois. It's time to set the record straight.

Calculus&Mathematica (C&M) and related courses have been in service
for nearly 20 years at University of Illinois at Urbana=Champaign.
Within the department, there are the ignorant Bishop-type folks who
denounce C&M without taking taking the time to see what C&M does.
Here are some facts:

Last year, there were several C&N calculus sections for engineers,
several more specially adjusted for life science a students. This
year, the school of life sciences has asked for an expansion of C&M).
There were several sections of Differential equations&Matheica, as
well as several big sections of Matrices,Geometry&Mathematica, a new
visual course based on the ideas of the singular value decomposition.
The is also the Probability Statistics and Mathematixa course which I
taught this last semester. A precalculus course is in the works.

C&M also forms the basis for the highly successful NetMath internet
distance education program which this year enolled about 400 world
wide students. NetMath has worked so well that O'Reilly Publising has
hires ob some former NetMath teachers to create internet. In
addition, NetMath has already produced a Stanford engineering PhD and
an MITengineering Phd who took all their undergrad math classes in
NetMath before they went to undergrad school.

Isn't it extraordinary how it's the people who reject moral
relativism and insist on the black-and-white difference between good
and evil who argue for making exceptions when it comes to torture?
