Real Algebra Here We Come
Dancer started real algebra yesterday. I say "real" algebra because I guess what we were slogging through before was pre algebra with a heavy dose of rip my hair out geometry. Paging through the new book, I was happy to see that at least the first 20 lessons are review. I need 20 days to have a break from learning a new concept everyday and make me feel like, yes, will be able to teach this. It has been 30 years since I had algebra and, no Mr. Teacher, I never did use it.
I took Dancer's picture enjoying lesson 1 since she is still smiling with no tears. I wonder how many tears have been shed over math, I know I had plenty of my own as a kid.
