A solution for the math-challenged

I've always liked math.. I really think it helps develop the intelligence. Math is logic. You can't live without math.

Barry's Response - It is a good thing. I have always had a preference for math in my school years as well. The use of logic and then the integration with philosophy in the college years and afterwards makes the study of math a very good way to prepare for tackling the problems of life.. And it goes far beyond metric conversion.

Example of math

I think math is maybe the most exact, and perfect science, along with physics. I've always loved math, and I'm able to do calculations very fast, in my mind. Math's just great.

Barry's Response - Glad you like it. It's been around a while.

## Counting

by Rand

Measuring Out Rand-Yards

Really, I use math mostly to simply count.

Every single last thing that I wish to quantize I work out a graduation scale of my own and count it up to make comparisons.

For example I count distance by using Rand-Shoes. Typically a car is 16 Rand-Shoes long.
By the way, my name is Rand. : )

Barry's Response - Good thing both of your shoes are the same size.

Thanks for the laugh, Rand.

That is what I do on a full-time basis.  Find out if it is necessary for your project.
