If you’re expecting this to be a post on the wonders of mathematics or an appreciation of a beautiful algebraic equation then I am afraid you are going to be disappointed.  This is however a short rant cunningly disguised as my next post.  

My children who attend an International School, and who are both taught by very lovely American teachers have started to call mathematics ‘Math’! 

This REALLY gets my goat and has become symbolic of everything that is wrong with this International education.
