John, The trouble is that if you don't accelerate the capable kids, there is no reason to have more options (statistics, BC CAlculus, ....) better IMO to put them in the most appropriate placement NOW and create the courses needed as needed. I can't imagine how much the high level math classes may change in 6 years with Internet access and WWW etc, Honestly, could you have anticipated something like the TI-92 6 years ago?????
