[QUOTE]Originally posted by Munchkin Man: [QB] [QUOTE]Originally posted by bdgee: [qb] You might as well have them stack their shoes into a pyramid and claim that was class participation. It doesn't expect the students to participate other than ritually following orders and it isn't mathematics, but arithmatic.[/qb][/QUOTE]_____ In other words, you give little or no educational value to the classroom and homework assignment the Munchkin Man described. The Munchkin Man views the process of solving a long division division problem as one of the most beautiful adventures a student can take. Solving a long division problem requires a complete mastery of one's multiplication facts and subtraction algorithms. Solving a long division problem requires an absolute precision of thought and the ability to carry out its steps in a methodical and systemic order. Therein lies the beauty of solving a long division problem. The beauty lies in its order and precision. Solving a long division problem to its absolute and final result is a journey. The longer the problem, the longer is the journey. And the more beautiful that journey is along the way. The intrinsic worth and beauty of solving long division problems can not be measured or fully described. In spite of the Munchkin Man's skills of verbal expression, the intrinsic worth and beauty of long division goes far beyond what the Munchkin Man is able to express in words. The Munchkin Man is very saddened that you don't see it. Best Wishes, Munchkin Man [/QB][/QUOTE]
