  1. Very inventive, Rol, I'm impressed. I am especially pleased that you use the word geometry, because when I was teaching the term used was Shape and Space, which demeans the entire subject area.

    1. I came up with this while sitting in the Maths classroom.

  2. Still feel bad I jumped in - hope I’m forgiven. In my defence, my old job included lots of Maths too (for the qualification anyway) and you never lose it - although George does appear less than enthusiastic nowadays!


    1. Alyson, I lost my enthusiasm for teaching two years before I quit.
