Patrick, thank you so much for your message. I’m flattered, and encouraged. I think that is precisely the question I need to be asking (“am I really bad at math?”). It’s been over a decade, but I feel compelled to go back and give math another try. Whether or not I end up using it, practically, on a regular basis, I want to see how I fare, I think it would be good exercise for my brain, and I think that there is some confidence to be found there. I am hoping for the best for your daughter, but it sounds like she will be set up for success with a lot of the very necessary close support. Best wishes!
