Aargh! My computer died again. So I borrowed my daughter’s laptop and ran off to the coffee shop to write blog articles — and discovered that all the outlets on the wall here are *fake*.

## St. Jude’s Mathathon

One of our homeschool co-op members asked about raising money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Students in grades K-8 take sponsor pledges for working math problems, which they then complete either in a workbook or on the computer. It sounds like a great way to teach our kids to “love the Lord your God with all your mind” by showing love to others.

## World Maths Day

On March 5, students from around the world will play online, real-time mental math games. Registration (free) is open now for students aged 5-18. It looks like a lot of fun!
