Networking in 5th grade (5th class/standard) ..

This came up in an internal mailing. I'm surprised at what grade 5 (5th class) students are asked to learn !!

I was making my son study for his comp. sc. test and was surprised with
their portion. The contents/questions were..

What is the full form of ARPANET
What is the full form of Modem, how does it work,
What are the uses of TCP and IP protocols
What are the different types of networks..
Max packet size..

And if I give him the area and one side of a rectangle and ask him to find
the other side, he has a very tough time :)

So, if anyone is looking for good networking knowledge and very little math
background, I'll fwd his resume :)
