VP_Post_BlogImage_PowerandBeautyofMath

Math students who think about what they are learning, especially those who love to dig deeply in the mines of learning, invariably discover the power and beauty of mathematics. These two qualities have been recognized by thinking people for centuries. While most students realize early on the power of mathematics, at least to solve problems,

Train Up a Child

VP_Post_BlogImage_TrainUpaChild

Many years ago, someone pointed out that the book of Proverbs has 31 chapters, making it ideal for a month-long Bible reading project. So I read one chapter a day for a month, and the experience was so rewarding I kept doing it, month after month for about a year, repeating the same verses as

Why Classical Languages Matter

EatSleepLatin

A Latin teacher, like me, asked to write an article on “Why Classical Languages Matter” is tempted to peddle her wares like a fair barker with a megaphone: “Step right up! Get five languages for the price of one! Feel smarter in just fifteen minutes a day! Absolutely guaranteed to raise your SAT!” While all

Is Learning Geography Still Relevant?

Legends-Leagues-Bustard-Ned

This month’s epistula features an article by Ned Bustard about the relevance of geography in an age of GPS and ever more portable computing devices. As someone who has never been particularly gifted in or appreciative of geography, I found it very compelling … I came across a video of a man-on-the-street interviewing Americans for
