    but you learnt the whole year right? he got away with that… I find that boys are able to make up all the work and pass the regent with just reading some barrons books while us girls work all year for it… are you really much smarter than us? oh well

    i can’t tell you what has changed since then. but i do know that it has change many times since them, the last time was just 2 years ago. You go look what is on it and then talk, big talker.

    ya, we are smarter. LOL what i don’t understand is why girls have so much homework. Us boys never had so much homework. I hear that girls do homework for hours. I never had more then 30 minutes worth of homework my entire life.

    Then you STILL don’t know how to compare dates. January 2008 (when I joined) is before September 2008 (the date on the yros profile).

    So, let’s see what we have: You claim to be an expert in educational curricula despite not being able to comprehend when one date comes before another one, you believe that calling people names is a good form of argument, you believe that basic respect for one’s elders (even if you disagree with them) does not apply, nor does plain old civil disagreement.

    Wolf,

    at a certain point it becomes moot… the kid doesn’t seem to be open to any answers; he wanted to vent. He’s done that, so let it go; he’s his parents’ problem.

    As a 3rd party I’m telling you what I wish I was told on here sometimes when I don’t know when to just walk away without wasting any more of my time.

    i first learned trigonometry in the late 1960s, anyway i sort of learned it. it was very boring and difficult and aggravating.

    i learned it again, if you can believe this, for fun, about 10 years ago, by myself, from a book. it hadnt changed one iota.

    after the first time, i never used it.

    after the second time i used it quite a bit, i started seeing things differently. i remember once thinking about how fast shadows moved, on fixed objects such as a light pole, at different times of the day. i had a reason for this question, nothing earth shattering, just curiosity about how the solar system works.

    i was able to answer the question in a very clear and detailed and (continuous throughout the day) manner by using some very simple trigonometry, in my head.

    ive used it in a similar manner many other times as well.

    sometimes knowledge, like this, even can bring one to Simcha.

    when you are old enough in experience to appreciate it.

    Mod 80- I am shocked that you are in that age bracket! I always thought you were so much younger! LOL I guess you have to be old enough to be a mod so….

    “All you people here think you know it all. You think you know exactly what’s going on in the yeshivos, although you haven’t been there in years. “

    The arrogance of youth. We’ve all been there. Let him vent.

    mod. 80, stop making these stuff up.

    wolf, once again, it’s mind boggling to me how you sit for hours arguing with an 11th grader when you claim to be a person with children in high school, having to support a family. Like what’s goin on here?

    gregaaron – I agree that chemistry may not be useful to you specifically but in general it is difficult to say that it will be useful to one person and not to another. A curriculum is designed to provide a broad range of topics that are useful in some way. It is no feasible to customize classes for each student based on what they will need later in life. Particularly for high school students who can change their mind about their future on any given day

    Typical. Shift the focus to a personal attack when you can’t answer on the points. Yet another sign of lack of merit to your arguments.

    Once again, I ask you to point out to me how the course has changed since I took it in the 1980s.

    Again you repeat a question that I already answered. I don’t know exactly what changed. But i do know that it did significantly change multiple times since then, the last time being 2 years ago.

    in this thread, many people have proven to be immature.

    mosherose, thank you for the support in showing these people who knows what the’re talking about. I’ve been arguing with them the entire day to no avail.
