My son and I were at a gas station near Atlanta’s Hartsfield Airport.  A Georgia state trooper was parked next to me by the gasoline pump.  The state trooper roller down his window and asked for information about Slide-A-Round Math Manipulatives because he saw the magnet on my car.  The state trooper stated that he and his wife are very concerned about his son’s progress in math.  After discussing his strengths and weaknesses, we decided that the 100x and Money manipulatives would be in his best interest. After doing a short demonstration by the gasoline pump, he purchased those manipulatives for his son to use during the 2013-14 school year.  I never really thought about being able to help a student at a gas station.  My goal is to help one student a time regardless of where I am.
