The goals of this two-day workshop are 1) to give parents and teachers new tools for introducing children to mathematical concepts in the form of fantasy stories and 2) to help Sasha Fradkin and Allison Bishop, the authors of the upcoming book Funville Adventures, beta test a chapter of the book.
Avoid Hard Work is our newest book. It gives a playful view on ten powerful problem-solving techniques. The techniques were originally published by the Mathematical Association of America for advanced high school students – and we made them accessible for children ages 3 (yes! three!) and up. The book is for parents, teachers, math circle leaders, and others who work with children. Go to the book page to try activities from the sample pages, watch James Tanton’s pirate island story, and read about our worry-dreams.
