Geometry classes should not be their own, they should be inserted into other curricula

UnsweetIceTea
Reeseroni

geometry class is mainly review of other topics with the addition of new theorems applying to standard shapes. In geometry, the main linking factor between the different subtopics is that they all apply to shapes. geometry and its own is not used by everyone, and so, 8t should be split up instead of taking a full year to focus on math most well not be using unless going into certain feilds. on top of that, many of the proofs taught and used in geometry classes take up extra time and are not wort...

Marijuana Legalization

reggaeman445

I support the legalization of marijuana for many reasons. The biggest reason why I'm such a supporter is because the legalization of marijuana in Colorado has shown pure positive effects. In the first six months, over $10,000,000 was raised in tax money, and in the last year, about $3,400,000 was sent to improve schools. Along with the taxation, people should have the freedom to smoke it. It has been scientifically proven that no one has died for overdosing, and it's much safer than alcohol. Alo...

What are your thoughts on a woman being the president of the US?

Debateaf
jjUK

I have taken a survey on how many people are for/against a woman being the president. People are concerned that other countries wont take a female president seriously. i believe that gender does not matter as long as that person is able to make intelligent decisions and make positive impacts in this country. Not being able to be "taken seriously" is from lack of intelligence and ignorance....

Women have unrealistic expectations about marriage

ImOkaywithMostPpl
Emma.Leah3

I believe that today's society under values the importance of marriage and that it makes women have unrealistic views about what marriage is and what it should be such as the glorification of materialism. At this rate, there will be no more married families that stick together. Morals and values are pushed out the window. There is nothing wrong with being a single parent, but the fact remains that having two parents , 1 male and 1 female with the right state of mind and understanding what marria...

Hello, this is my first debate and I am looking forward to it. The topic is, 'Cigarettes should be legal while cannabis should be illegal'. (I'll use 'smoking' to refer to smoking tobacco based cigarettes and cannabis to refer to the drug when used for recreational purposes not medical etc.) I disagree with this motion however I am not saying that both should be legal, neither of them legal etc, only that it should not be as described in the title. My first 2 arguments are as follows. 1...
