Because the Value of a Constant Never Changes

Because the Value of a Constant Never Changes

I love math. I took every mathematics class possible in high school and then again in college. And when I decided to become a teacher, I chose to get my Masters in Middle School Math and English. I think the thing I love most about math is that formulas never change....

Thoughts on the Mother of Jesus in 2020
