For those of us with a passion for the beauty of mathematics, it is a really interesting fact and can be quite elegant. However, it's a struggle for a lot of the kids who don't have that appreciation and see it as something tech could just "do for them"Mrs. Ghttps://www.blogger.com/profile/02241133524008754804noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-6926130448453804901.post-21662254915418228372016-03-10T15:01:06.443-08:002016-03-10T15:01:06.443-08:00Amazing blog, great ideas.

Does not the technology of the era make such a theorem obsolete? Think about why in the past, this theorem was important and why it is no longer?Anonymoushttps://www.blogger.com/profile/09915075854633687518noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-6926130448453804901.post-88795367277691361172016-02-16T09:11:08.749-08:002016-02-16T09:11:08.749-08:00Let me know if you think of any ways to improve it...Let me know if you think of any ways to improve it :)Mrs. Ghttps://www.blogger.com/profile/02241133524008754804noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-6926130448453804901.post-36187653986794885362016-02-15T19:53:13.602-08:002016-02-15T19:53:13.602-08:00I was just about to introduce the Rational Root th...I was just about to introduce the Rational Root thm tomorrow in class.
