August 27 Day 902: Spreading Math Joy

#TacomaMath participated in the 18th Annual Back To School Bash hosted by Pastor Kevin Rogers and the City of Faith Christian Center. It was amazing!

August 26 Day 901: Border Run

Washington-Oregon border that is. It was a quick down-and-back to Salem, Oregon to drop off my youngest for his sophomore year of college. I loved our time together just talking.

August 1 Day 876: Safe Journeys to MAA MathFest Everyone

Let the posts about traveling to MAA MathFest 2022 commence. My own awkward boarding selfie (#ABS) graces the cover of this post. I have been traveling a fair amount this summer and each time I am in an airport, the number of people wearing masks seems fewer and fewer. Even my friend Allison commented onContinue reading “August 1 Day 876: Safe Journeys to MAA MathFest Everyone”
