Subject: Re: CGI Math

I was one of the first students to receive CGI math in Madison, WI in
the late 80's and early 90's... I am now 24 and I have to say I credit
CGI math with having an enormus impact on my methods of problem
solving and of thinking about the world.  In college I was always the
quickest when it came to thinking of abstract solutions and things
like statitics (pulling words from numbers) came very, very easy for
me.  In elementary school while learning CGI, I thought it dumb, too
many story problems, but I honestly believe I would not be the
creative thinker I am today had I not received CGI math.
