No man is an island, and authors perhaps less than most. I cannot possibly express the debt I owe to the family, friends, and online acquaintances whose help and support have made this book possible. Special thanks to my husband David, whose patience stretches far beyond what I deserve, and our children, who taught me so much over the many years of homeschooling.
Thank you to Marilyn Kok, who pushed me to write way back in the beginning, to Julie Pangrac, who talked me into doing workshops for homeschool groups, and to Sue VanHattum, whose work on her own book, Playing With Math: Stories from Math Circles, Homeschoolers, and the Internet, convinced me to bring my books back into print. To my many thousands of book and blog readers, your comments and encouragement have kept me going. To my fellow math bloggers, I’ve learned so much from you all!
