On the Theshold

IMG 0431 Right before Country checked out today, UPS arrived, a harbinger of changing times. The package contained her new math book. My gal starts Algebra 1, and high school, next week.

I am excited, because I like Algebra. It’s like solving a jigsaw puzzle. Of course, I didn’t love it so much when I was in school. I think Algebra is a subject more suited to adults. One needs a certain amount of life experience, a few years spent figuring out how life actually works, to deal well with a system built on abstracts. It ought to be an interesting year. I bought the TM, with the answers, but I elected not to buy the solutions manual. Hopefully, I won’t regret that decision.
