are you referring to US 3rd graders, who ranked consistently near the bottom amongs all industrialized countries in math ? i rest my case. where's your "proof"? better yet, just go ask your local mac worker what a set is, or do a survey on random 3rd grade kids in your neighborhood. ain't worth responding further to your personal attacks.
