Mathwonk everything you said proves my point. Unless someone wants to go into math they will have no need for 99% of the stuff you just stated. For 1st year students who want to go into engineering or science they have no need for this stuff. People like you want to force people who don't want this kind of math or need it into taking. It gets rid of choices and is not beneficial. Under your math plan I wouldn't be able to take multivariable calculus freshmen year in college. This would prevent me from taking the proper level of physics.
