The kid next door wanted some math help. He is 16 and the subject is trigonometry.

Trivial algebraic manipulations are done away with and they are replaced by a table. The table has two rows and as many columns as you think you need steps. How exactly it is that you can get from a = b / c to c = b / a is not taught. Apparently this method is taught internationally. This is all fine if you choose hospitality or psychology later on but not if you're actually going to need math later on, I would think.

So I wonder, is this going to carry over into college or are they going to fix this problem before that time?
