Excerpt from A Fractionated Fairytale – A maths lesson story

Once upon a time a young girl named Katharine lived in a snug cottage not far from the castle, where her mother stitched the royal quilts. Katharine’s mother brought home scraps of fabric for Katharine, who made beautiful
miniature quilts. Quilt-making was easy and fun for Katharine but she longed for something more challenging to put her mind to. If only I could get an education, Katharine thought, I’d be able to find my true calling

A maths lesson story

Every night, Katharine’s mother reported on life at the castle. The favorite topic was the unseemly behavior of Prince Henry, just the same age as Katharine and the only child of the King and Queen. Katharine loved listening to stories about Henry. Most of the royal staff described Henry as “bossy” and “demanding” and “downright unpleasant.”
