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.
