Jane in NC Posted February 14, 2008 Share Posted February 14, 2008 that your child has done this week which have made you proud. First and foremost: my son struggled through a proof using the Pythagorean Theorem to show that the product of the slopes of perpendicular lines is -1. He could just memorize this as a fact, but the proof required some thought. I am a very Proud Math Mommy. I am also pleased with the interest that my son is taking in the presidential race. He is asking about delegate counts, caucuses vs. primaries, and how people prioritize their hot button issues given that it is rare to find a candidate with whom one completely agrees. Finally I'll mention that after last night's losing hockey game, he told me that he was annoyed with the whiners in the locker room. Because of the poor communication and lack of team work, his team got exactly what they deserved. We're having a good week, folks. I feel blessed that homeschooling gives us more time to develop pietas, gravitas, dignitas and really cool proofs. Jane Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
