Knot theory is a branch of higher mathematics. I wonder if teaching a
little rope magic could be justified as part of the curriculum? I gave a
couple of none too bright 11 year olds a little rope lesson earlier
tonight. A simple way of sliding a knot off a rope was first. A palmed
knot enabled the magic to take place. Next converting a reef knot into a
slip knot followed. They disappeared off with the bits of rope to
impress others. I'll give them some more lessons and see how it goes.

And, believe it or not, I use string (and knots) to teach relational
databases.

Amazing what you can do with a bit of string.
