Well today I cracked Lesson 3. This was called Advanced Level Spheres or something like that. My lighting was much better. The drawing isn’t.
My 9-year old was working diligently on her fraction homework right next to me which proved to be a bit distracting.
I already know about numerators and denominators and this is her homework, not mine. (Subsequently, I learned I didn’t know as much about numerators and denominators as I thought I did.) We worked through the problems together and I got a little drawing practice in on the side so today’s lesson was more of an art/math lesson.
The object is to lay out spheres (balls) to create a three-dimensional picture. It looks so easy in the book, but laying it down on paper is another story. I think mine pretty much sucks, but I’ll keep practicing.
Just for fun, I did another little homage to my good buddy Dean. See if you can find it!
8:15pm Update – After my meeting I just had to give it one more shot. For Lesson 3, and going out of a book, I’m happy with it.
