image for US Triangle to have 4 sides?
Now lets see..... How many sides does a triangle have ....1...2...3...4

A leading US Education spokesperson has sparked controversy after insisting his former school in Texas should be allowed to teach an alternative theory to standard trigonometry. In a speech to be delivered to congress early next week, Governor Randulph Wardin is set to argue that students have a right to question trigonometrical equations and be open to introducing fresh ideas into this area of mathematics.

In a statement he said, "I'm not saying that the rules we all learned and continue to learn are factually incorrect, all I want to achieve for our children is the right to believe that there may be other answers....after all, the thought that an equilateral triangle has three sides were never set in stone....were they?"

It is expected that Governor Wardin is expected to formalise an option for this new standard, to be taught alongside conventional mathematics, from the beginning of next year. The new lessons are to be called Angle Diversification.

Critics have dismissed Governor Wardin's comments as ludicrous but have resisted forming a formal opposition to the proposals as they fear a backlash might upset a few people.
