Response to elleng (Original post)

1. During my ACP (or perhaps other coursework)

this was a "best practice" if you could wrangle it.

Mostly they had in mind middle school, I think, since high school curricula are more tightly controlled and scope-and-sequenced.

Personally, I'd be ecstatic if my kids could just make the connection between the algebra they learn in Algebra I and II and the "math" we use in chemistry and physics.

"Mr. Igel, this is a lot like algebra" makes me go glassy-eyed and slack-jawed as I respond, "No, Taylor, it's not a lot like algebra. It is algebra." To which Taylor answer, "Oh" in a bewildered tone of voice.
