Every Day Mathematics

I found this video very useful to understand different maths curriculums followed in American schools and why it is necessary and important that I need to teach my daughters mathematics at home.

Camp Taiwan

I was all excited to go for camp Taiwan with my daughters.
I have never done any camping before and so was very keen to have a camping experience.

Camp Taiwan was a very nice place maintained by a couple who runs the placa and all activities.Its luxury style camping amidst nature.

Here are the photos we took.

I had wriiten about swimming and how my children learned to swim.

This post is more of a status update.

May 3 was an Spring Meet at Tanya's School.

Its been almost a year she has been practising two times a week.
Though she swims all her strokes her speed is still nothing to write home about among other swimmers..yet I feel very proud of what my daughter has achieved.
She can do about 10 laps at a time without any complaints...I wonder if I will be able to do that even once in my life time.

At the Spring Meet She happily took part in 5 events ( Max per individual) and won two medals....I thought it was a great achievement and I am really happy she was able to achieve it...and it was a great motivation to pursue harder ...

The Events she took part and the timings are

Event 5 Girls 8 & Under 50 SC Meter Breaststroke
2 John, Tanya 8 TAS 1:10.81 1:12.38
Event 8 Girls 8 & Under 50 SC Meter Backstroke
9 John, Tanya 8 TAS 1:15.89 1:04.73
Event 13 Girls 8 & Under 100 SC Meter Breaststroke
1 John, Tanya 8 TAS NT 2:33.91
Event 14 Girls 8 & Under 50 SC Meter Butterfly
7 John, Tanya 8 TAS NT 1:48.67
Event 16 Girls 8 & Under 100 SC Meter IM
4 John, Tanya 8 TAS 3:11.30 2:44.29

Here are a few photos of the Spring Meet

Meanwhile I am trying very hard to get Riona also to start swimmming.She is just beginning to learn the strokes and trying hard...but one can already say she has made progress.look at the video the time she turns 8 like Tanya I hope she has opportunities to develop it further. I think its a great excercise all your life..

I feel a great sense of accomplishment that I could get my kids to do it....and they love it too....
