Here is why he named the blog questions " I am currently teaching algebra and geometry to 7th and 8th graders.The name of this blog was inspired by the fact that the longer I teach, the more I realize that education is less about the answers but more about the questions.

" A couple of years ago when I was teaching the Pythagorean Theorem to my Advanced 7th grade class, I gave the students a “formula” for creating Pythagorean Triplets (a,b, c values that form right triangles). They went mad with it. I had students creating lists of triplets into the the hundreds, just for fun!"
