Mathemagic

Fry Lodge has its first week of school at Wade King Elementary under our belt, and we all couldn’t be happier. Not only do Kristine and I get to have uninterrupted adult conversation again, but Henry and Ruby are ecstatic about their new school. Today, Henry came home and insisted he show me… the TED Talk (!) that his teacher, Mr. Livezey, showed his class. I watched. My mind was blown. It’s a talk by Art Benjamin, a self-described mathemagician, who does crazy math in his head in front of an audience. In this TED Talk, he calculates the square of randomly picked, five-digit numbers. In seconds. Henry has a new hero, and he couldn’t be more psyched about being in 4th grade at Wade King. Watch and have your mind blown.
