"Math is not just rules and rote memory. Math is like ice cream, with more flavors than you can imagine. And if all you ever do is textbook math, that's like eating broccoli-flavored ice cream!" --Denise Gaskins

As we expand our minds this semester by learning new and interesting things, I invite you to ponder the mathematics in everyday life. As Mrs. Fibonacci of Jon Sciezka's Math Curse so aptly puts it, "...almost everything in life can be considered a math problem." See if you can find one example of math in your life. It could be sitting right in front of you.
