It is often said that mathematical values, mastery and flow transform people who practice math. The transformations are reflected in children’s faces. Look at mathematical faces for inspiration, and share them with your kids. This is what it’s all about!

Submit your photos of mathematical faces for future posts.

This blog post starts a series showing kids and teens doing mathematics. We would like to thank Alexandre Borovik for the idea.

This kid is in the state of flow – her hands and shoulders are relaxed enough for precise, smooth movements… And her the face looks peaceful and meditative.
