Interesting. My son is in grade 8, and I don't really see much difference other than in the language used, some of the assumptive knowledge, and weird (to me) mathematical notation.

Of course my son is expected to not only know all that but a whole raft of other stuff.
The problem with fantasies is you can't really insist that everyone else believes in yours, the other problem with fantasies is that most believers of fantasies eventually get around to doing exactly that.

Yea, I was doubting the title/message of the article myself and wondering if that was just me.
Still, interesting to see, that there's little difference in over a century of education.
