    Do you mean Standard Form?
     
  4. No, I have a range of engaging applications though.
    Depends where your kids are...I like utter basics showing the size of football crowds from a local park kick about to a junior school team to a saturday league team to a semi pro regional to a 2nd division game to a championship game. Then moving onto premiership and then some of the fluctations that have been seen at Barcelona's Noucamp from 80-120'000 and how thise are represented.
    And if the girls feel excluded? Put some picture of Christiano Ronaldo on each slide of a powerpoint...usually keeps them engaged.
     
  5. They love scientifc notation in the United States [​IMG]

  8. Lord no, he is far to liberal and middle of the road. I like to think of myself of the univeral alienation machine. Women, men...all humans, even animals in fact.
