Nothing very deep here today I’m afraid, just taking a break from math homework. I’m not sure if this is the “new math” that I’ve heard so much about, a new way to introduce basic principles, or if I’m just not as bright as I was thirty-six years ago, but I’m getting a headache.
Instead, I played reporter, an interview with my daughter that I first conducted back in June of 2015. It’s been making the Facebook rounds again so I thought I’d see how her answers had changed.
