V - I never said any such thing...please. Everyone refers to a text book to find out where and how at some point... How else would you know what concepts to teach at all? Or that you have to teach certain concepts before you begin others?
You must be thinking of someone else, or you misunderstood me. My problem in Math while I was in school, was that teachers had no time to really show me the basic principles that I didn't understand, so I just kept getting failed and passed to the next teacher, and the next, without really learning the basic structures.
Me buying a program that was designed by men who graduated from Harvard, to help me teach those concepts that I didn't get is a completely different thing.
Somehow, I've moved suddenly from being "exemplary" in your book to "ill-educated". Interesting... not that it matters, it's just... interesting.
