    I remember when I was a little girl, we had thick, round, green pencils in the younger grades. I think we started using the standard, longer, yellow pencils in fourth or fifth grade. I went to grade school in the 60’s and funny to think that they’re still using those green pencils after all this time.

    She’s studying a derivation of string theory – the Burnt Sienna Uncertainty Principle. Pretty advanced; I didn’t learn that until Crayola 101 in college.

    As a side note to nothing in particular, “101” has come to mean “basic,” “simple,” “easy,” etc. etc., but it started out in “Nineteen Eighty-Four” as the main room of torture. Prisoners were taken there to be tortured by being exposed to their worst fears.

    That fits, Alex. Crayola 101 was my worst fear.

    Actually, the use of 101 for introductory courses in college started in the 1930’s and worked its way into common usage from that root.

    It is puzzling at times how the writers have Gracie be a genius and a kid in grade school at the same time.

    The difference Baldito is that Gracie will come up with the correct answer.

    Math only works one way. We’ve been solving the same problems for hundreds of years. Deal with it.

    The problem with math is the teachers. Some of them teach, some of them don’t. After that, none of the colleges will teach the basic stuff at the remedial level. Plus the books are different. They are a review. People think math is about brilliance but it’s really about studying it thoroughly enough not to have gaps in your knowledge of it.
