It’s Palindrome Week

This is a fabulous week for both mathematics and vocabulary!  This week is Palindrome Week.  What’s that mean, you ask?  Simple!  A palindrome is a word or phrase which reads the same in both directions (mom, dad, stats, Hannah).  A palindromic number or numeral palindrome is a number that remains the same when its digits are reversed.

See, for vocabulary…..we learned the word palindrome.  And for math we learned about digits and reversal.  If you are a parent, you can teach these things to your kids!
