I wasn’t sure what to expect – would it be too far beyond my reach? It wasn’t! Crystal does a good job of making an intentional math lifestyle possible for the average person through examples and her passion for the subject.
The math and geography sessions I attended at the Summer Seminar were both outstanding! Crystal was not only fully prepared and engaging, but the host of resources, data, and research behind her methods were completely sound. I did not go away feeling burdened with one more thing to add to our calendar, but felt excited and fully prepared to implement the simple methods of training in these areas!
Crystal's workshop was one of my favorites. She spoke truth, her tone was great, and she had good notes.
