Did you mean "subverts"?
in the Atlantic?
Thank you. We can use many of these ideas.
Ryan, Thanks. I myself learned Scheme back in the day using DrScheme. For the learning/teaching populace that we are talking about, I feel this would be a bit over the top.
Thank you! That looks interesting, and I think Scala would not be hard to learn as well.
Thank you. This could be useful.
Thank you. In our system, LaTeX (as of now) comes quite a little bit later in the studies, for (some of) those who decide to pursue a degree in the sciences. I think it is better to keep it that way for at least a few more years, till the number of people who know LaTeX is sufficiently large : it is always easier to teach kids things that many adults have some inkling of.
One good reason is: for a large majority of these students, the only computers they get to use are the ones in their school labs. Without a computer to read it on, how would they access the material at home?
Thank you. This list of software will come in handy when we want to think about what more software to include in the course.
Thank you, especially for that last suggestion.
