We all have Math stories, I think. Is it helpful to look at the answers in the back of the book? Please tell us a Math story by leaving a comment. We’d also enjoy your adorable Blankie photos, like this one submitted by AJR!
My dogs love their blanket (it’s a towel). They request it by resting their chin on it if I forget to tuck them in.

Original lyrics by The Blankie/Carrie; sung to “Oh, Tanenbaum”
Oh, Algebra! Oh, Calculus! don’t tell me I can’t do It
If I don’t have Math aptitude, then help me just get through it
Solutions in the Teacher book
I must admit I had to look
Oh Algebra!, Oh Calculus! just maybe I’ll Pursue it
To think of Math, I’m very sad
Was always told that I am bad
There’s nothing wrong with feeling stuck
It doesn’t mean you are a schmuck
Beginning with the End in Mind
I feel so focused and aligned
I Make a plan and grab a friend
There’s something for me in the end!

My 1st grade teacher, Miss Ruby, taught me so well about the decimal base numbering system [she didn’t call it that … just simply add & subtract] … that when I became an Information Technology Professional, I had little difficulty understanding how to add & subtract in other base numbers, such as binary or hexadecimal. I am forever grateful for this precious teacher God brought into my life.
Miss Ruby really was a great blessing to you. She empowered you for your future life although you didn’t know it at the time!
Thank you for sharing.
