My concern arose in connection with college students who seem to have developed
bad thought patterns in high school. They are expected to read textbooks and
decide for themselves whether they have questions to ask in class. Unless an
alert student questions "Why do we call them triangles and define them as
figures with three sides?" one never has an opportunity to explain. So, as
always, the ones who don't question keep their confusions.
