To Director Kelly Stuart, from Ann M. Preus, originator/founder of Compute-A-Color early math.
Congratulations on the fine work you are doing. I feel fortunate to have found out about this arm of U.S.
Education; as a small business innovator/entrepreneur, my endeavors may have found a partner. Years ago, I published, registered, etc. this unique system for visual understanding and sensory learning/enjoying the amazing patterns and relationships of number. The TM Compute-A-Color aptly
describes the use of color and senses to self-discover and self-correct number facts and concepts.
Another TM came straight from the classroom: "I get it!". Kindly view my web: compute-a-color.com (it is easier to See than to describe.) I like what you do! C-A-C is best started in pre-school; it works to basic adult understanding...indeed to all mathematics. Please let me be in touch. My name
is: Ann M. Preus, 60 Seymour Avenue, Minneapolis, MN, 55414; 612-378-2448; web above.
Best regards, Ann M. P.
P.S. All my legal aspects are excellent. Thank you for reading this.

My email to Director Kelly Stuart (above) was printed without my permission. The WestEd organization
has been alerted to my desire for equal treatment from every U.S. state, that my small business will be
known as well as large corporations which deal in educational products. You have my address, etc. above; please do not delete my request. My Compute-A-Color innovation was registered in 1978; I am
the sole owner; I held the first patent re the use of color related to number in a unique, logical and sparing use of familiar colors. Please give attention to Compute-A-Color; I have kept working and kept
files since 1978. It is way past time for the U.S. educators to "let me in"! I would appreciate a reply from
WestEd and Kelly Stuart. Compute-A-Color is MY trademark and my innovation! Thank you.

Hello again - Ann M. Preus

To whom it may concern: (from Ann M. Preus, creator/president Compute-A-Color, Inc.
Please tell me how to apply for the 2015R SVP Intent@cns.gov. (Or, provide a name for the relevant
department person. It is my intent; however, I see the name of an organization is also requested. I am
a member of Parents United.)
P.S. My numerous files and workshops show impressive evidence of DWW using Compute-A-Color. Now I am perplexed to see: Cimage compute-a-color [alongside various Universities] which offer online classes. I hope you can understand my feelings. Sincerely (again) Ann M. Preus
