Always a number

Are you one of the 99% or the 1%?

Always a Number, 6 x 6" ©2011 Kim Hambric

Were you first in your class?  How many marshmallows do you like in your hot chocolate?  How much do you weigh?  What time is your flight?

Some numbers we must embrace.  Some numbers we could do without.

Lately, I've been watching my daughter do her math homework.  I'm hoping that she will continue to feel the joy in mastering numbers.  I lost that joy in the 8th grade and never got it back.  It looks like I'm going to get the chance to learn everything again.  Maybe once again I will find the joy in what numbers do, and not just what they look like.

Kim I love this piece!!
Like you I lost the joy of numbers at school thanks to a scary teacher. (My love of poetry was also crushed at school) but now I'm over it and enjoying what numbers do (and really loving poetry).

Hogie, I also love this piece! The colors used made me feel like I was being brought back to a time gone by. And, yes the piece reminded me of the dislike I had for Mr. Harris's math class. I have not found any joy for math at that level.

Good Luck with your little angel.

we're having the number struggle right now with our 9 year old. funny how sometimes numbers can be our friends (like in your collages) and other times outright foes!
