Math has lost some of its luster, lately. I’m still doing it, but at a slower pace. I think that’s fine. The main goal I have is not to stop. I just have other things that are interesting me right … Continue reading

## Saxon Algebra 2, 2nd Edition vs Saxon Algebra 2, 3rd Edition

I’m at the point now where I’m comfortable saying, “Don’t use the answer book for the second edition for the third edition.” More than 99 percent of the problems are identical, but since I’ve found at least two that are … Continue reading

I could not find directions for this online, so after I figured it out, I figured I’d post it here so it’s somewhere when someone else runs into this issue. I don’t have a power button on my S4. It … Continue reading
