    Some see weeds, some make wishes...
    How true these words are today.  No one chooses to have a yard full of dandelions, yet it might be the only thing keeping your yard green. 
     

    Resources for Students: 

    In tough times generosity abounds.  There are many free math resources for student use.  Here are a few that have come across my email…
