Oh and the photo before the list is from the poster for one of the Math Awareness Month themes below. Can you figure out which one (without clicking on the links for each year)?

I'm going to send a link to your blog to my daughter. She will be graduating from college with a degree in math this May. She's deciding on graduate programs right now and is planning on a PhD in Math. I'm afraid I got through school, but Math is a foreign language to me. I never understand my kids once they start talking math, physics, chemistry, etc. I just don't know where they get it from.

Happy TT!
