This week, we attended the Triangle Creative Commons mini-conference, celebrating ten years of CC sharing. We met some wonderful people who work in very interesting CC-licensed projects – some of them are joining our math adventures! Meanwhile, here are our slides.

Special snowflakes!

Happy holidays! Make some mathy snowflakes with us and our friends. There is a snowflake chapter in the Moebius Noodles book, after all. Here is an excerpt with several smart mini-games for snowflake math.

Surprise family and friends with snowflakes made out of their names, or holiday wish words – love, happiness, math. Here is online software called Special Snowflake that can help you plan a paper project, or make an animated name snowflake for your site. Do you see my name in the snowflake below?

Whenever you do math, use words and images that are special for your child. Another take on this idea is to make snowflakes about favorite games, characters and other beloved roleplaying images. Sue VanHattum of Math Mama Writes sent us this beautiful example at Anthony Herrera Designs. Do you recognize this popular fantasy universe?
