I’m a self titled Math Mom & Education Fanatic. And I see math. Everywhere.
All sorts of weird and wonderful stuff about math learning and teaching! I write and do videos about the math I see in hopes that it will inspire or encourage others to find math in their world too. Of course the ultimate goal is to help grownups feel comfortable about math so we can create a world free from math anxiety.
In two ways – first there are tons of math picture books. I have a whole series on them, and I’ve barely scratched the surface. They are picture books that use math in the story. Or there are math books that use colorful pictures to illustrate the concepts.
We read two books every night. K8 has recently managed to con us into each reading one book. So we’ve gotten to where she ends up with three. She “reads” the pop-up book Puff the Magic Dragon to us – in song form!
On my iPhone, I’m currently listening to To Sell is Human by Dan Pink. I’m kind of a hard-core Dan Pink fan.
