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!

There's Math in Planting Grass

Part of Wordless Wednesday

I’ve planted all of this Amazoy grass from Zoysia Farms.

All of it.

Doesn’t sound bad, right?

Well, each of those rectangles are 15 inches x 10 inches. And we cut them into one-square-inch pieces before planting them.

My new grass better be beautiful!

So how many did I plant?

You don’t have to be a mathematician to know the answer. It’s “HOLY COW MY BODY HURTS!”

(Sometimes the right answer isn’t a number.)
