Using Words Rather Than Colors

So, once again I am the scribe by some strange(dumb?) luck. Today was our first day of the rest of the semester without mental math.

Once again, Emma, you've set the bar high for your ability to post and intelligently discuss the implications of what (I hope) you've learned.

Know that efforts like yours to improve the success of the collective (our class) rarely go unnoticed.

Good stuff here...
