We read a book about Ada Byron Lovelace last night. We learned about the computer program, the mathematical algorithm, that she wrote for Babbage’s Analytical Engine.
In the conclusion of the book, it was revealed that Ada’s program calculated Bernoulli numbers.
Thomas shouts, “I knew it! I love Bernoulli numbers. I just love thinking about them and looking at them.”
I’m so blessed he’s a member of this team. He adds such joy. xoxo

“It was so fun! If I could have stayed in for recess to keep working on it, I would have. I loved it! I can’t even describe how fun it was.” -Thomas says to me me during our afternoon walk today.
He had a lesson today on degrees, angles, and fractions ….
I find this one named Thomas so interesting …
On another note, it began hailing during our walk. The wind was blowing too. When wind blows hail into your face, it hurts a little! Yet, it was a GREAT walk!
