As time passes, we learn more about everything, including education. When we know more about how to educate students, they become more capable of exceeding our limits than we are.

This article that I scooped was about 8th grade math standards. Some of the things it was talking about were how 47% of the 8th grade was able to take algebra 1 or higher forms of algebra. Another thing it talked about was how adults and teachers are starting to notice this to. One of the ways the adults might have noticed this is that is by the algebra test scores are higher than usual. Or that maybe that if they put out a higher level algebra question just to see where the student is in math. Another way to find out if the students are a higher level of Math, is by putting them through a series of different algebra Questions.
