Math U See
Steve Demme, founder of Math U See was a speaker at the Homeschool Expo we attended this weekend. He was easy to spot as the tallest man in the halls. It was amusing to see how children flocked to him--you'd have thought one of the St. Louis Cardinals was in the building. Little boys waited in line for a chance to be asked a math question by the man they've evidently seen on their TV screens at home. My Schnickelfritz had his turn as well. He quickly provided the correct answer to "What is 3 X 4?" Fritz followed up by saying it was his turn to ask a question. Here it is-- "What is 87 squared?" And he made Mr. Demme solve it in his head. What a tough teacher!!
