TODOS: Mathematics for ALL


Volume 16, Issue 3 March 2023

From the TODOS President

It is March, the month where the spring equinox occurs in the Northern hemisphere. It is a time where I begin to anticipate spring. Each spring I am in awe; I live in a place where it appears that Mother Earth sleeps for 4 - 6 months each year; that is some plants have died, some plants are ‘resting’, the animals live in different ways, and Mother Earth is blanketed with snow. I live in awe and wonder each year as the plants and animals ‘return’ through the trees budding, the migration of birds, and plants sprouting. ... Go to the President's full message.
