Be careful. One of their “charter school” tricks is to hide communist propagandist code in advanced mathematics. As soon as you stop understanding your granddaughter’s math homework (whether that’s at the algebra, geometry, trigonometry, calculus, or even the long-division level) you need to really ramp up the vigilance!

Wow you are a nutjob. You can't hide communist propaganda in mathematics; that would require changing the very nature of reality. I was interested in mathematics right up until college, and I am not, nor have I ever been, a member of the Communist Party. So there.

What would communist propaganda in mathematics even look like?

Would it be something like:

a^2 + b^2 = Chairman Mao ?

"The Blaze" is Glenn Beck's website. Why, oh why am I not surprised.

I wouldn't be so sure about that. I've always known deep down inside that someday, this

Will inevitably lead to this.

"For the glory of Lenin, we build airships!!"

And we plot parabolic arcs! Muahahahaha! The capitalist pigs do not stand a chance, dear comerades!

@veras: an alternate answer is possible.

overthrow the ruling class and spread the spoils of war in an equalitarian fashion. once those have run out, then you share the turnips of all the comrades

Heh heh. Living in an post-Communist country, I've seen quite a lot of Communist-era Math books.While most of the problems in them were full of working class imagery, there was nary any propaganda in them.The history books, on the other hand...

Well, calculus starts with the letter 'c', as does 'communist', 'cccp' and 'china', to name a few.

Also, noone with a name like Liebniz could possibly be a god fearing westerner...

I wonder if his Capitalist Calculator told him about the Communist Propaganda hidden in that difficult 2+2=x problem?

But he's wrong about long division, it isn't Communist, it's Socialist.

'algebra, geometry, trigonometry, calculus, or even the long-division level'

How is that even possible? Do you have to work out the area of a hammer and sickle? Also, mathematics isn't particularly difficult at that level; algebra confuses you? How?

I really can't wait till the Christian math movement kicks-off. That should be fun to watch.

Biblical math: pi=3. Teach the controversy!!!!1oneeleven!!

ahahahahahahaha!

Questions on the homework:

a) If one capitalist employs 50 workers, who perform 5 hours of necessary labour and work for 10 hours daily, how many hours of surplus-labour total are performed?

b) Presuming the maount of variable capital employed is 50, and the surplus value extracted is 20, calculate the rate of exploitation.

c) If constant capital employed by the capitalist has a value of 100, calculate the organic composition of capital.

d) given the above figues, calculate the rate of profit for this particular capitalist.

(this makes more sense if you have read Das Kapital , I can assure you.)

methods for the confused:

a) is 10(labour time)-5(necessary labour)=5 *50(amount of workers) = 250

b) is surplus/variable capital

c) is constant capital/variable capital

d) is

s/v
----
c/v

(I think. I may have gone wrong somewhere.)

Confused?
So were we! You can find all of this, and more, on Fundies Say the Darndest Things!
