<< My name is Eric Becker, age 13. My Uncle's name is Harvey Becker
( I have noticed mail from people such as you in my
father's mailbox, and I keep hearing about this "system" of yours. And I
would like you to know that I have a system of my own. The old
way!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Lecturing, assigning homework, letting the
students voice their thoughts and ask for help.
That is the true way of doing math, and that got me into algebra in 8th
grade, something few of my friends are able to do. So if you want to know
what works, ask a student like me who works hard to do well in math. And if
you still insist that your system works, didn't you have to be lectured into
learning how to use it?
Very Sincerely Yours,
Eric L. Becker, Age 13, Sierra Vista Jr. High School >>
