I agree with Joan, Karen Dee and Judythere's a lot of good math to learn in high school without rushing to calculus. However last week I felt again like I was fighting a losing battle against the college admissions officers and the parents who want their children to go to those colleges. We in the K12 schools need help in the form of a message from college admissions. As long as they give more value to calculus than they do to courses in discrete mathematics, statistics, etc. we will have to offer those courses.
