Subject: Re: Re: Value of two-column proofs
My 1950's class in two column proofs in geomentry is one of my fondest math memories. I always felt good about myself when I was able to follow the reasoning that this method requires. I am not familiar with the flow chart method, but I will say that I have done a bit of programming in my life and I usually wrote the flow charts after I wrote the program (if a chart was needed). I knew a lot of other people who programmed and did it the same way. The same way, in English classes, I wrote the outline after the report. I guess my mind is just disorderly. My mind is most active when I am deep in the details and not in overview planning that a flow chart requires.
