Saxon math? Is that like some medoeval math, like fuzzy math but with broadaxes, pillaging and wenching?
When I was eight my third-grade teacher taught us our times tables put putting the multiples to songs. The 3's were to "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer"... and ever since whenever I hear it I think "three six nine twelve fifteen; eighteen and twenty-one...."
Teahc them to sing their lessons to Gilbert and Sullivan tunes the rest of the year. Between reading Tolkien when I was 10 and being introduced to the Pirates of Penzance when I was 12, my English helped me more with HS Latin than the other way around, at least in terms of vocabularly. Gilbert and Sullivan are the best SAT-verbal prep a kid could ever have.I'm curious about Saxon Math, too... I assume it's the name of a textbook or program, but I keep thinking 'If Bewowulf has 3 axes and Hrothgar has 5..."-S. Murphy
