             The Story of the Y to the Third Symbol.

In the words of the founder, for your enlightenment and, hopefully, entertainment.

Do you remember third grade?  Seems like yesterday, doesn't it?  

I was a reader (and a bit of a geek).  There was nothing I loved more than sitting by myself reading a good book.  I was decidedly right-brained and, to put it mildly, math did not come easily to me.

Do you remember what it felt like to be called up to the board to solve a math problem?  For me, it was a moment of absolute dread! Match me against any elementary school brainiac and I could crush them in a spelling bee.  But fractions?

Thankfully, the lights came on for me one day.  I learned that math wasn't the schoolyard bully after all, and we became close friends. I'll bet you're thinking "good thing!"

Here is a quiz for you.  Don't worry; you won't be graded.  Pick a number, any number, with the exception of 1 or 0.

 I'll take 7 as an example.  

Add the number 7 together three times.  Ready?


NOW, take the number 7 and multiply it times itself three times.  If you recall third grade, you might recognize that you are simplifying the exponent!  


Don't you just love math??  Everything changes with the rotation of the addition sign.  Just a little multiplication and

we create leverage.


A powerful trio.
