I graduated from M.H.H.S. in a year when the sum of the digits totals 25. That fall I moved to Edmonton to attend the University of Alberta. Since graduating, I have had the privilege of teaching in a variety of locations - from a small community north of Yellowknife to a large city in eastern Ukraine. I have spent the majority of my career teaching secondary mathematics.

What is the first natural number containing five different factors? I’ve been teaching mathematics longer than that many years! Alternatively, as logical reasoning and the ability to justify your thinking lie at the heart of mathematics, can you identify where this picture may have been taken? Come see me if you know the answer to either question!
