Does anyone know if there are any UEB Math courses coming up?  NC has
adopted UEB Math and since mine are in 3rd and 5th, I want them to learn
sooner than later before they have more code to learn...  our current TVI
is not going to touch it this year.  :(

I would prefer she would before Olivia came to middle, otherwise, I will
take that on myself too.  I was hoping for some UEB Math camps to crash
course learn it.  I know they can do it, its just changing their finger
memory that will take time.

Thanks again!
