[QUOTE]Originally posted by The Bigfoot: [QB] If the Munch is mostly unhappy about the dumbing down of teaching math in junior high... I guess I can understand that. We done a lot of dumbing down at the museum on the premise that it makes us more accessible (feeling-wise) to a broader section of the population. I.E. Our Paleontology Gallery has been called Dinosaurs and Fossils for the last five years since everyone asks where the Dinosaurs are. Despite this renaming, few understand that there is a difference between Dinosaurs and Fossils and now fewer understand what Paleontology is. LOL I don't like dumbing down. It provides an atmosphere where wrong information is less likely to be corrected. That said...There has to be room to make mistakes or growth doesn't happen. You stand to a strict "code" and you shut folks off. Seen it happen many times. There is a middle ground where mistakes can be made and correct information can be disseminated without causing a perceived intelligence gap. It is a fine line though. It is good to remember that whomever you are you do not know everything. Even what you think you do know is often "incorrect." As an example (I have used this before) how many of you when you think of the Orangutang, know that I have misspelled the word? It is Orangutan...there is no G at the end of the word and it not pronounced with a G at the end of the word. If you have every written or pronounced it with a G...you failed. Now...what's more important...that you learned something here? Or that I have been able to highlight your ignorance? BF [/QB][/QUOTE]
