A few posts this weekend over at Game Theorist. My son and I argue about plausibility in Dr Seuss, and my daughter has another parent-teacher interview and she also evaluates starting a revolt over the price of food. ACCC take note on that one.

  4. quirky and mathematically-oriented books for children

GameTheorist: Recent Posts
