Some time ago Maria and I had a chance to present the Moebius Noodles project at an Open Source/Creative Commons event hosted by Red Hat. As we tried to distill our big ideas into a 3-minute presentation, we had to choose the most important points to cover. They are

  • In many ways, young kids already are mathematicians.
  • Beautiful mathematical adventures are all around us.
  • Math is not a worksheet.
  • Freeing ideas and experiences (i.e. through Creative Commons licensing) is critical for success.

Want details? Check out a video of our presentation.

If you are developing, teaching, or playing rich early math games, we want to hear from you!

P.S. Can you tell this was my first public presentation?
