I'm starting to realize that my baby is starting to take full charge over her own life and getting ready to drive her own destiny.
In one of these moments, I stared down at her math book. She was going through arithmetic series and geometric series and then progressing to limits. My mind went back to the days of me being in class 10 in India where I went through all this. So I could not resist asking her, “So baby, have you reached the Limits, yet?”
Raka raised her eyebrows and said “Ha ha ha, very funny.” That started our math journey.
I am trying to stay ahead of the class and twice a week discuss her progress with her. Being a strategic marketing person, I had to start by developing a vision for the journey. The vision was “Learn-Act-Teach”, where Raka would first learn the concept, get rewarded for the learning in tests, and then teach me and her friends the concepts. This would help her cement the concept.
This math connection has helped me get closer to her and now we are getting into solving problems. The other night we were at the dining table trying to solve to the Tower of Hanoi problem. http://mathforum.org/mathimages/index.php/Towers_of_Hanoi
Good luck to you with the Tower of Hanoi, and once you solve it, you may want to pass it onto me.
