Here's a nice "feel good" story...

I can't find the thread ~ but someone on here posted a math website that had math activities for grades 1 - 12, called "A+ Click."

Anyway, I passed it along to my husband, who teaches math ~ who is addicted to math. My husband got on the doggone thing ~ and stayed for weeks. It's so like him ~ anything with computers and math has got to be good!

Sadly, there were a few "glitches" in some of the answers ~ which only a math nut like my husband would ever notice! After that, he was on that website every night, scouring for ways to tweak it. (I never got back on the thread to mention this ~ I just didn't have the heart to put cold water on it...)

Well, each time my husband found something ~ he would politely email the creator, who came to welcome my husband's input. This went on for several weeks ~ by now, I think my husband spent so much time on the website that he's seen every problem ever invented! So, today, I guess my husband found, in his school mailbox, a letter from the creator (who lives in Europe) thanking him so nicely ~ and a big, glossy book on Switzerland, with gorgeous picture after gorgeous picture in it!!! Wow!

Strangers reaching out to one another, across great distances, just because of common interests in learning and helping other learners ~
kind mutual exchanges like this give me hope for a better world! Many thanks to whoever posted this thread in the first place!

It's a nice website ~ well organized, thorough, and simple. I guess I like that sort of thing. In the letter that the creator wrote to my husband (Igor ~ no lie!), he spoke of wanting to help kids love learning ~ really nice values it seemed!

I hope you look it up!
