“We’re working on some things. He knows his colors and his shapes. He still gets seven when he counts the toes on one foot — he really likes seven right now! He likes it when I recite Pi. And I’m trying to teach him the quadratic formula. He hasn’t quite gotten it yet. It’s sung to the tune of ‘Pop Goes the Weasel.’”

Danica McKellar aka Winnie Cooper from “The Wonder Years,” has successfully transitioned from sitcom star to math missionary and author of best-selling books such as Math Doesn’t Suck, and now she’s teaching her 23-month-old son Draco (god, best name ever) some algebraic basics. Is it wrong that I’m a bit relieved to find out that a two-year-old hasn’t quiiiiite gotten a grasp on the quadratic formula yet? It took me a while to memorize it when I was in high school, even when my math teacher brought in a guitar and taught us the song, which is now stuck in my head (“The opposite of B / plus or minus the / square root of B squaaaaared…”). Thanks a lot, Draco. [People]
