Math Lesson

As a computer programmer I am occasionally called upon to deal with complex mathematical concepts. Like differential equations or calculus*.

Tonight was one of those occassions - I needed to use fractions. And I don't just mean use them - I needed to add, subtract, multiply and divide them. Heck, I even needed to compare them.

Luckily, Shira was available to make a cheat sheet and remind me how to do this fancy type of math.

What does it say when 3rd grade math trips me up?

*Truth be told I have yet to need diff eq or calculus in any of the software I have written. Using the integer remainder operation is about as tricky as I usually get.
