With just a slight bit of tweaking, the language of Algebra can become a computational language!  That’s really cool.  I just don’t get why more people don’t care about that, at least at a high school level.  Because, again, I can guarantee you that there are a lot of scientists at CalTech, and JPL out there who DO care and who agree with me that THAT is what 21st century math should be about!  Not USING interfaces – articulating them!
Praise be.
