Functions and Algebra Quote

Ò I found that this Math Specialist Program placing (sp.)
a lot of emphasis on understanding why a rule is the rule. In the beginning of this class I related the song
ÒI will surviveÓ to my high school
algebra experience. During the beginning of this class, there was no doubt that this was going to be my Òtheme songÓ this time around as well.
With all the emotional stress, mathematical
challenges, and mathematical talk IÕve endured
during this class I must say my theme song has retired and a new one is in town---ÓI believe I can prove, I believe I can justify.Ó {goes to the tune ÒI believe I can flyÓ by R. Kelly]
