I Wasn't Very Good At Math

     When I was a youngster I did not perceive myself as being very good at Math. It was a struggle for me. Here is a paper from my first grade class at the John F. Kennedy Elementary School in Somerville, MA. The year is 1969. 

    No doubt there were momentous events going on in the country in 1969, like men landing on the moon, riots, hippie gatherings, and political assassinations, but apparently I was busily concerned with mastering subtraction. Not a bad thing.
     This was one of my favorite papers, which I was proud of. 
A later 4th grade attempt at fractions
