Day 3/67 of Five Month GED, and Adulting as creative problem solving

Learning to solve problems, which I think is the essence of Adulting, begins at an early age and continues to count for a lifetime. Today’s lesson poses a question: What numbers did the ancient Greeks use for counting?

That question was meant to raise the problem of counting non-discrete quantities before Arabic numerals came to Europe (from India).  The problem itself was meant to introduce the concept of using mind-maps BestMindMap as a tool to begin the problem-solving process_of_problem_solving process.

Here is the lesson plan for Day 3, of 67, week 1/18:
