Should Math Be Taught in Schools?



((Sad to say, this parody is hardly exaggerated at all. A few of the answers are almost verbatim to the actual answers of the Miss USA contestants to "Should Evolution Be Taught in Schools." Go watch that video on YouTube and see for yourself)).

(((There are days I think I am living in the world of Kornbluth's "Marching Morons." Just look at reality TV, and remember the hit show in his story)))

(((I am vastly pleased that the eventual Miss USA winner, and GAME OF THRONES fan, does "believe in evolution." And presuambly in math as well))).

Disagreed. I think our understanding of evolution will grow, evolve if you will, but it seems clear cut enough that organisms do in fact change and adapt over time that our knowledge will be extended rather than replaced.

Wording is important. ;)

Re: I must say...
Exactly. The Newtonian laws of motion have been refined by relativity. Those refinements are indeed revolutionary, but not in such a way that you can't do quite a bit of work with strictly Newtonian mechanics. Evolution will have controversies and revolutions, but those won't displace the foundations Darwin laid down.
