Sweet Geometry

Homeschooling can have its advantages. Not only do my girls have the cutest teacher in the country, they also get to have some pretty cool experiences. Yesterday is a perfect example. Annalise has been studying shapes in math. The two most recent terms she had to learn were sphere and cone. I, personally, have a difficult time thinking of a better representation of these shapes than the object lesson Lisa used to help her remember them - an ice cream cone.

You may be familiar with a milk mustache or a chocolate mustache, but what about a ube goat-ee (you bee goa tee)?


  1. Hmm, my kids and I miss Cornetto. We miss ubi! My mom in Manila will surely cook this purple yam for our reunion this Christmas season. We are coming home! Hurray! Thanks for sharing.

  2. Now THAT'S my kind of math class!
