I told my daughter one time that there couldn't be any square circles, and she attempted to paint one to prove me wrong.http://i31.photobucket.com/albums/c361/wasichu/squarecircle.jpg
I will prove it "grammatically". The solution is quite simple, and I learned it I don't know, I think fourth grade. At that time they were introducing "modern math" to us kids so that we'd be ahead of the Russians. It was the Cold War and we were racing the Russians to the Moon back then. It was strange to think that 1+1 no longer equalled 2 but 10. Go figure. So here is the solution:Pi "r" squaredThe teacher drilled it into us that "pie are squared". Later they decided that we couldn't read because we didn't have "funnetiks".Skool lerned me gud.
I just ran into this post, and I have to say that is the most adorable thing I've ever heard. What an interesting and unconventional way to look at it. I think your ten-year-old is a nascent Wittgensteinean :-)
