That's all they teach in 10th grade... Agreed. How to count. They figured out that I knew how to count up to 1,000 (they only required 500) and how to count down to -500 (which they didn't require until 5th grade) and let me move right into 1st grade math. I'm pretty sure that anyone who can write inteligent things on PF has had a very similar experience and would find my school system to have unnecessarily low standards and bad curriculum (especially general 7th grade science. Oh man, you all would hate that).
