When "incorrect" methods of the first analysts lead to correct answers, I wonder why and end up studying nonstandard analysis and philosophy of mathematics. As a result, different methods are developed which provide other insights on well known theorems and an approach which is more intuitive for the introductory level. The challenge is then to introduce 21rst century mathematics in high school
