AHEAD OF THE CLASS

Welcome to Math...Where it All Adds Up!

"Pure Mathematics is, in its way,
the poetry of logical ideas." 
~Albert Einstein

  

"When I was attending  Daytona State College,  my history teacher always gave a four question test.  There were four  essay questions.  The last question was always: What else did I learn? He told us that he may ask questions that we weren’t strong in, but the fourth question would  always prove to him
that we did learn!"
