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

“It is the *mark* of an educated man to look for precision in each class of things just so far as the nature of the subject admits; it is evidently equally foolish to accept probable reasoning from a mathematician and to demand from a rhetorician demonstrative proofs.”

—Aristotle (384–323 B.C.)

“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)
