Mary Edwards letter about all the snow has a comment "math is
everywhere". Has everyone seen "THE MATH CURSE"?? It is a kids book by
Jon Scieszka + Lane Smith, published by Viking 1995. I read it to my
students on one of those days that tend to be "wasted". Most of my
classes have loved it. It has some neat math. The book starts:
On Monday in math class, Mrs. Fibonacci says, "You
know, you can think of almost everything as a math
problem."
On Tuesday I start having problems.
Great book.
