Who knew that Lewis Carroll ever contemplated or wrote a draft of the third book of what is now known as the Alice trilogy? Carroll was a math teacher who wrote Alice in Wonderland, Through the Looking Glass, and Alice Exeunt, the long-lost completion of the Alice trilogy. There are many hidden meanings revealed in the trilogy when viewed through math lenses. Join a (re)tired math teacher to search for the hidden (and not so hidden) meanings.

Feedback from Ron’s last course:

“Ron has done an outstanding job of collecting and researching non-postal stamps, especially the tax stamps during prohibition era. An excellent course for serious stamp collectors and interesting course for the general public. His video recordings will be extremely valuable for future viewing by many different groups such as schools, stamp clubs, or just history buffs.”

“Interesting (!) Presentation–information of which I had about 3.2% knowledge.  Thanks, Ron and Chesapeake Forum.”
