Practical implications indeed. I am so blessed that my two older daughters especially love math. Very good to see the "lightbulb moments" when what they've been studying in school meets real life. My oldest daughter is really an odd nut too. She loves reading (takes after her old man). The other night she had fallen asleep reading. I went in to shut off the light, and noticed she was reading a book about the elements. She had fallen asleep with the page open to Hydrogen. I guess she didn't get very far that night.
