is very good at math, and sometimes she helps me with my homework.
Essi makes math seem exciting. She says learning math is like
learning a second language. It takes a while to understand
all the rules, but she says if I work hard, and I don't give
up, one day I'll be able to understand the language of mathematics.
Muc is studying math as well. He wants to be the first worm
to crawl on the moon—that's what he told us—and
Essi says that flying to the moon would definitely require
mathematics. Muc went underground for a pencil and a calculator,
and he showed up in my math class. He sits in the front row.
