MADISON -- Edgewood High School (EHS) offers more than 27 athletic teams and 25 other co-curriculars, but when Edgewood High School math teacher Cathi Shaughnessy first organized a "Math Team" about a decade ago, the number of students interested in participating and traveling to meets at public schools throughout the city could fit in her car.

Now, there are enough student "mathletes" to field four teams of eight and, with alternates, up to 40 students attend the competitions by bus.

The difference between growing up and growing old

There was a person with a young child who declared that she couldn't find her keys. The four-year-old, precocious as only a child can be, said, "I'll find them for you for $5." When the mother heard that, she laughed and said, "For $5, I'll find them myself." She was speechless when the child replied, "Good luck. I hid them pretty well."
