I'd like to officially say that although most of us at the Lehua Writing Project are current or former English teachers, we are NOT allergic to our math colleagues, and in fact we are more alike than not. So in that spirit, Happy Square Root Day! (3/3/09) For the math challenged amongst us, 3 is the square root of 9 8-)
The last square root day was on Feb. 2, 2004, and the next is seven years away, on April 4, 2016.
Enjoy the day by reading a math children's book like:
Math Curse by John Scieszka
Your Momma Thinks Square Roots are Vegetables by Bill Amend
The Grapes of Math by Bill Tang or
The Phantom Tollbooth by Norton Juster
