### Famous quotes containing the words point and/or decimal:

“Most childhood problems don’t result from “bad” parenting, but are the inevitable result of the growing that parents and children do together. The *point* isn’t to head off these problems or find ways around them, but rather to work through them together and in doing so to develop a relationship of mutual trust to rely on when the next problem comes along.”

“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)
