    In a bowl of jelly beans, we might ask a student to count her favorite color jelly bean and then count her least favorite. Student will say which one has more.

    This lesson resonated with me in a big way around the discussion of more and less comparisons and how we tend to focus on the “positive” more. You know what, though?

    Less is so much more in life!!!! Less pollution, less over-crowding, less disease, less noise, etc, etc. It was interesting to me that this idea of how we preference “more” over “less” then leads to a preference for addition over subtraction and maybe even multiplication over division. Makes me realize that we need MORE educating and LESS indoctrinating!!!!
