Algebra, Geometry, and Trig! Oh My!

I never teach my pupils, I only attempt to provide the conditions in which they can learn.

Albert Enstein

I would like to think that I am my father's daughter. When I was growing up, I wanted to be just like him. He had a rough exterior, yet he was gentle and kind. He was an alcoholic in his youth; but, I did not know him then. He was forty-nine years old when I was born.

He was patient in the math department as well. In second grade, I had the most horrific time trying to multiply by any number. I just could not understand groups of things. That is until he taught me how to multiply by fives. He asked me if I could count by fives; naturally, at that point, I really did not understand what he was saying. "Okay," He said, "How about the clock? Can you tell me what the numbers mean in minutes?"

I understood that completely.
