Colleagues:

The ongoing discussion between Bob, Kirby et al is a bit of a hoot;-) ,
but to segue the discussion:

I'd like to see a curriculum consisting of 1/2 laid on from above, the
other 1/2 at the teacher's discretion - with the only proviso being that
the teacher use his/her half to broach topics not covered by the
"standards" gang. Ie topics that interest the teacher - topics to which
the students might contagiously be attracted. Also - no covering the
following year's mandation.

I'm curious how many people do sudokus but profess a dislike of math. If
math were were approached as a fun subject a la gym, shop,
model-building etc I believe we'd be well served. What about
puzzle-solving is there not to like?
