Because you’ll need it someday.
I’m such a liar

  2. I never had to take that, I don’t even know what it looks like. My son is in the second grade and they already do things different from the way I learned it. I’m going to have to get a tutor for myself once he gets into Algebra. TALU

  5. I barely managed to get through algebra and geometry – no idea what trig even entails. I get immediate brain freeze at the mere thought of math! 😦 Haiku, on the other hand, I can get behind. 🙂 [#TALU]
