Thank you for your comments. As a Canadian teacher using the system in a secondary school semestered format, I certainly appreciate the time taken by people like you to post on boards like this. Do you have any experience, either personally or through word of mouth in your district, about Accelerated Math's implementation in high school? I specifically am referring to how Accelerated Math 'marks' are integrated into a teacher's evaluation scheme. Do you have a state or district exam at the end of high school math courses? How much reluctance on the part of either teachers, parents, or students are you experiencing on an ongoing basis? (if any) Are questions in the American libraries occasionally bugged? (very infrequently, but it happens in the Canadian libraries) Who makes implementation decisions about change of policy, administrators, teachers, math departments, etc.??? With regard to your last question, I totally agree. I like so many aspects of this software, and I hope that as teachers, administrators, and specialists like yourself, we can find ways to fine-tune the process a little to make it the best experience possible for our students. I certainly also welcome the idea of corresponding via email....
