"Math is like one big puzzle. It's really
not that different from learning the rules to a game and playing it.
It's also a great way to develop the logical part of our minds. Students
learn math and discover that they can solve problems by breaking them
into smaller, manageable pieces. It takes an open mind to realize you
can learn new things."
