The upmanship continues! The Volgi missed the mark as I was too young to have the HP-35. I do, however, own the HP-28S and the HP-48S. Maybe I’ll loan each out to my fellow Gormogons so they can work out the new scoring system to be used at the Olympics (believe it or not, I’m citing a NY Times story…hopefully, it’s accurate). I’ll just slide some beads on the abacus pictured. Apparently, even the Olympics suffers from grade-inflation. This won’t deter me from watching as previously posted. So, they need to go to 14 or 17 points? If or when I become a teacher, my grading system will adopt the grading system used by my high school AP math teacher, Fr. John Woodward, S.J. This learned man used a 60-point grading system. That might seem odd, but realize that 60 has one of highest number of factors for any number under 100, allowing for easy scoring of questions ranging from 2 to 30 points each with many variations in between.
