the math wars are on...

this is sooo crazzy - we have a utube: math education an inconvenient truth which may be worth watching...

since it is amusing to watch a weather person showing that she hates mathematics, and assumes the kult of decimal as the core base of math stuff....

Now do not get me wrong here, I would love to live in a world in which there were only ONE form of Binary Encoded Roman Numerals - just like jesus did... but that is not the real world of math.

Being able to solve a problem with more than one method is a way of knowing that one understands the process in more ways than merely citing the known truth that was passed along on the Truthier Way....

Ok, so I always was amused by things like 'the law of nines' and 'the law of sevens' that are great for solution spaces between 0..9, but is not really gooder outside of that range.

Granted, we rarely have to deal with numbers greater than 9....

This is all getting crazier and crazier...

There are some video rebuttals... this is going to be interesting, since, well, so much stuff, and not one comment about how clearly understanding party loyalty should take precedence over validation of an algorithm or any other form of data....

Obviously if MORE americans had been willing to see that the Evil Dick Cheney and his Godless Regulators were destroying our white christian america, with it's repressive governmental regulation of the economy, that has caused recent economic down turn, then americans would not have to do math - since if they could not buy a darky to do it for them, they would be able to use Faith Based Math, so that we get the answer that Jesus wants....

Yeah... that works for me...
