- in ya mum!
mr. buchanan, i see the name 'donnelly, k.' as someone who has written about dumbing down. i agree that postmodernism and the rejection of absolute truth has pervaded some aspects of the hsc syllabus, but surely not for maths. i know what you're getting at, but the difficulty of the maths course probably reflects the lack of application of students (lots of students hate maths and dont feel compelled to take it for the hsc if they dont like it) and lower university entrance marks to get into maths teaching. this is the same guy who wrote an essay called 'john howard and the art of democratic leadership' or some garbage like that.
