Hi Adam,

What is your source for the claim that a few dozen years ago Algebra was

the highest math class taught at Harvard? I'm not sure you are wrong, but

if that is true, Harvard must have been peculiar. Most schools have had a

math department for a long time, and certainly they wouldn't have taught

anything lower than Algebra (arithmetic has always been required in

elementary and secondary school, and geometry has been common in secondary

school for a long time), so you would essentially be saying that they only

taught one class.
