"My students had a lot of positive comments regarding your workshop.  Here are most as many reiterated the same sentiments.  These are their words exactly;

-"They were fun activities.  I really enjoyed the interactive, hands-on learning."
-"I liked how he weaved his personal information into the math activities."
-" He was very smart and funny."
-"I liked that there was no writing work to do."
-"It was a very enjoyable experience.  I can't put it into words but I just really enjoyed it."
-"They were a whole hour of brain teasers!"
-"I liked how he didn't just tell us, he got us to ask questions."
-"It was never boring.  It went really quickly."
-"He showed us another way to think."
-"It was another type of math that we haven't been exposed to."
-"You could tell that he really knew math and that he really enjoys it."

Thank you once again.  I learned a lot myself and feel re-inspired!"
