Even if you can't make it to our Tuesday afternoon classes at the Hudson Area Library or our Wednesday program at Kite's Nest, I hope you consider attending the meeting  on Wednesday, September 10 at 5:00pm 108 Front Street, Hudson.

We hope to build a collective of teachers and students to make homeschooling more effective and possible for more people in the area and, in addition to discussing our upcoming schedule, we hope to hear about what people want and need for upcoming semesters, and what ideas and skills people might bring in to help HATCH and it's partners build a homeschooling movement in Hudson that works for more families.

So come. Bring your concerns, questions, and ideas.

As for my math class...

For the history of math, the idea will be to build the idea of number out from counting and a sense of quantity in animals, to new ideas that came along, such as negative numbers (thanks Bramagupta), prime numbers, then irrational numbers, then imaginary numbers, then variable cardinality in infinite numbers, then... you have to stop and think at every turn. Words and numbers, practical and theoretical math, communicating number to the electric battery worms of the planet Zog (who have never seen stars (and have no idea they exist) or their own sun and do math in negative base two)...
