Gwen walked into my office and put a geometry book down on my desk. She needed help with her homework.
I looked at the book and my stomach started to flip. I remember taking geometry about 25 years ago, but I have not used it since that time. During my college years I took the minimum math requirements, because I was majoring in cultural studies.
I looked at the homework assignment with all those foreign symbols and words that I have long forgotten. My initial feelings were of inadequacy and ignorance.
However, we were able to get the homework assignment completed. It just took a bit of determination and a lot of googling.
Sometimes I amaze myself…
