Math was second-nature to me throughout my life, into the computer industry, along with raising my 3 children into college. While I was learning algebra, I tutored a neighborhood friend in the Bronx in geometry. Since New York schools require their students to take State Regents exams, where they only give you your test scores, I didn't accept a 98 for my algebra regents. My parents took me to the regents office, where they pulled my paper to show me my mistake. The erred answer that they called me wrong on (an absolute value question) turned out to be their mistake, therefore changing my score to 100.
Computer programming seems just as naturally logical as math was to me. I went from not knowing dBase in my first consulting assignment to becoming the on-site expert. My 4th generation language programming with FOCUS was the core of my consulting work for 16 years with the Fortune 50. It taught me how to program reports with most languages I've encountered.
