Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Stories from an unnamed uni.

Scene: Faculty Meeting.

Agenda: Faculty Discussion on New Course Introduction to Computation. (MATH 100) Course is to be remedial for students unprepared for Basic Mathematics. (MATH 101)

Question from Prof:  "Is not Basic Mathematics intended to be a remedial course for students unprepared to take the Intro to Math course?

Answer from Admin: "Yes."

Question from Prof:  "So we are adding a remedial course for the remedial course?"

Answer from Admin:  "Yes."

And yes, fractions were part of the curriculum for the original remedial course.  So I guess that we were down to teaching.....  numbers?????
