I'm Bon Crowder and the photos above are both of me - in 1989 and today. I'm a Generation X mom of Generation Z kids.

I began peer tutoring in high school in 1984. MathFour.com is the 2015 version of me helping peers be comfortable in math.

If you're a Gen-X parent, you're in the right place!

The Gruel We Feed Our Children

Now it’s processed and canned in textbook factories.

We spoon feed it to our kids.

And sprinkle it with carcinogenic sweeteners.

We make the spoons bigger and force feed this gruel to them.

So much in our world is going organic.

Maybe math should too.
