As I’ve mentioned before, I am a 6th grade dropout, not only that but I was “homeschooled” for most of my elementary school years, so my math abilities are pretty non-existent. To correct this problem, I have started studying mathematics; **from zero. **Here is where I will put my notes.

## Behold the power of 0

Something that was pointed out by Scott Flansburg: 0 is a number. No really – it’s not nothing – it’s something. Programmers, often, start counting at zero, but you’d be amazed how your mind changes when you get rid of 10, and start counting at 0. Don’t count: 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9 and 10!** Instead, start at 0 and count like this: 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9.**

Once you do that, you **notice that counting is circular!**
