© 2003 Michigan State University Mathematics is cumulative. Properly done, the topics in each year depend on the topics covered in previous years. When one fails to take this cumulative nature into account, the study of mathematics degenerates into a relatively meaningless list-making and memorization of unconnected factoids – something particularly damaging for weaker students. James Milgram, Professor of Mathematics, Stanford University MSU Education Policy Forum, Washington, DC, June, 2003
