My mom is outside doing the yard, so I thought I'd sneak in here to write my own blog entry. It's been at least a year since I posted. You know I've been in something called "therapy dog" classes. I love to learn new things, but geometry and algebra are my most favorite subjects.
I don't mean to brag, but I'm quite good in calculating on the fly. Allow me to show you how it is done.
I am ready for the first problem. BTW, the weather is deliciously cool for this type of problem solving.
Man, this is an easy one -- a softball throw. I'm no pansy.
In for the kill, errrr, catch.
I got it, of course.
I just love problem solving that I have a hard time giving up the ball for another throw. I particularly like to mouth it and sometimes Mom gets her finger in the wrong position and I bite down a little too hard. No matter, no blood is drawn or even a skinned finger. I try very hard to keep track of where she has her fingers on the ball but I get soooooo excited when its math time. It's a lot more fun than therapy dog training.
The first two problems were easy ones. What's up with Mom? She knows I like a real challenge!
Time out. Grass bur.
Now she's cooking. This looks like a good one. Ok, calculating distance, speed, best angle and how high to jump.
Keep your eye on the ball and don't let anyone tell you that geometry, algebra or higher math is hard. It isn't; stay focused.
I hope you have a better understanding of math calculations from this lesson. Remember two things: 1) Stay focused, and 2) math calculations are not hard. I've also been very lucky because I've not been caught at the computer.
As Mom says, until next time, God bless.
