I’ve finished another NoteBoy cartoon in my theory series. I made this one simply to explain Roman numerals to students. I discovered a long time ago that some students haven’t heard of Roman numerals, so they don’t get the concept that Roman numerals are simply another way to write a number. Even high school students often don’t know what Arabic numbers are. It makes it hard to explain that inversions use a Roman numeral followed by an Arabic number. I hope this helps explain it to them in a humorous way.
I took Latin, and being kind of a history buff, I thought I’d also put in a few references to Caesar. Maybe some students will read up a little more about the history of the Roman Empire.
