Yes, I completed it! I finished my very first National Blog Post Month challenge, the NaBloPoMo. I made it through thirty straight days of blogging successfully. I showed up every day with a new post, just like I promised at the beginning. It was definitely a good exercise for me. Like daily homework for my students. Even more.

Just a brief reminder that – whether we realize it or not – mathematics is everywhere in our lives. “We all use math every day; to predict weather, to tell time, to handle money.

They might inspire you and you might give some of them a try this year, or maybe later. I know, I definitely will.
Two-thirds of the challenge I signed up for has been completed! In the midst of all I had to do and chose to do the last twenty days, there were times when I got to thinking – even just for a moment – about many things. What do I want to do in my days?
