You have to start somewhere. Let's start with the images and shapes that you will use all through the world of math. We want to say that we don't cover every shape, and symbol in this section. These topics are here to offer you a good start. As always, go to your local bookstore or library for more detailed information.

# Colors and Shapes

If there are any guys visiting the site who are colorblind, you have our sympathies. This section may be wasted on you. It's an area about recognition and learning the basics of colors. We combine those colors with shapes that you will definitely be able to recognize.

Colors are used to describe what an object looks like. Shapes are also used to describe the way an object looks. Numbers are used to describe how many or how much of an object there is. All of the topics in this section are about describing your world. Once you understand the vocabulary, then it will be time to use it to learn math. As we said... You gotta start somewhere.
