Famous quotes containing the words floating and/or decimal:

    I myself have seen the floating ships
    And nothing will ever be the same
    The shouts,
    The harrowing voices within the house.
    I stand apart with an army:
    My mind is graven with ships.
    Hilda Doolittle (1886–1961)

    It makes little sense to spend a month teaching decimal fractions to fourth-grade pupils when they can be taught in a week, and better understood and retained, by sixth-grade students. Child-centeredness does not mean lack of rigor or standards; it does mean finding the best match between curricula and children’s developing interests and abilities.
    David Elkind (20th century)
