I’ve committed to write 31 articles – one each day in October. And each one is a hint, study tip or piece of wisdom leading to long term math learning.
I know, it sounds like crazy talk.
But I’ve already listed out the topics. I’ve already written some of the posts. And I’ve already shot some of the photos I’ll use.
And I can’t wait to share all 31 of these with you!
How it works…
Each day’s tip will be posted just like any other article. They’ll line up on the site like everything else. But they’ll also be listed here as a big bundle – which makes it easy for you to access them, even in November!
To whet your whistle, I’ve given you some sneaky hints to each topic. I’ll adjust them to the “right” title and link to them as they get published.
