A is 7 turning 8. He likes math. We have been talking about mathy things since he was quite little. Discussions of googol, googol plex, negative numbers and infinity happened YEARS ago, well before times tables. And today we did some verbal algebra. He totally get’s it. Why not? Big whoop. Math literacy happens at all different ages. Just depends. I’m glad he’s free to develop this interest at his own pace.
