Hi Chris, et al.

I am most of the way there, as you can see from lines 91 - 143. The function
is attempting to return something that can be read out loud back to a child
if they ask the Speak robot a mathematical question.

My biggest question is the best way to import the functionality from the
Calculate activity. As per silbe's comments on IRC, I'm leaning towards
duplicating the two modules inside of the Speak activity.

I guess I could implement my own parser, I thought about using the ast
module. Then I realised that I would just make a poor replication of the
parser & evaluator that's already been created.

Thoughts/comments welcome.
