Ford didn't try to convince me that I would in fact be using obscure math concepts in my everyday life as a bestselling author or minister in the church of Christ.
(Guess who is laughing now?)
We found each other amusing - he loved math and long distance running, kill me now - kept it light and I started getting perfect test scores. Me. Who knew?
I'm trying that approach when doing homework with Lexi is trying my patience. With a little help from my friends:
Tracy, from Being European-ey , sent Lexi this fun math book for girls, with recipes, and real-life applications that sneak the 'nasty' stuff in. Like those cookbooks.
Lexi's eyes grew wide - someone, in exotic CANADA - bought her a book.
We can't wait to put this bizarre curriculum aside and have some fun with numbers.
And not to be outdone...
Lexi managed to spruce up her reading with a little sex ed. Now with sprites.
The world really is full of wonder.
Thanks Tracy for sending the math book. She was stunned.
