I realized that I had never really read the Standards. I've just used them
as a reference from time to time to see, for example, what and how trig.
should be taught. I've probably read no more than 20 pages or so. I liked
what I read.

But today I sat down and started reading, first in the beginning, and then I
started skipping around. Am I the only one here believes that this is just a
bunch of "newspeak"? It reminds me of those boring old ed. classes that I
was forced to take.

I still like the Standards but I think it would make a very nice "thin" book.
Anyway, I will take up the challenge and keep the Standards by my computer.


P.S Don't believe anyone who says they have read the Standards in its
entirety. Their mental capacity would be so diminished that they would never
be be able to send a an e-mail message.
