Subject: Re: Re: Value of two-column proofs

The standards call for decreased emphasis on two column proofs.  Their
reasoning I believe has to do with relevance to the student.  Computer
programming teaches the same step-by-step logical thinking process. 
It tends to make more sense to students.  I like the discovering
geometry method better for most students.
