March 26: Math
March 27, 2013 § Leave a comment
In our household, math is always considered a creative enedeavor. J. goes to a Montessori school and has been learning “dynamic addition,” which he showed us today. There are terms like “crisis of nine,” and reaching 10 is an emergency sounded with the ringing of a bell, when ten units go to the bank to be traded for a ten. Never mind that he has some major misconceptions. The fact that we had a great time adding (and building) with base ten blocks, and that the bedtime story was Sir Cumference and the Knights of the Round Table, is good enough for me. But then, it’s not like he had a choice regarding liking math.
