Book news

Carol Cross, our awesome copy editor, is finishing the work this weekend. We should have the printed book pre-order form up in the next few days, as well. The first print run will be for those people who crowd-funded the project at the level of paper book copies, as well as the pre-orders.

School your kids (and yourself) in the art of asking questions, build chains of attributes, and study home patternomics with our new series of mini-games called Math Goggles.

Want some sage advice from a ten-year-old math club leader? Check out the guest blog post by Marie!

My name is Marie, and I am ten years old. Since I was six years old, I have attended a math circle. Last year I started to help out with the class for little kids. This year, I decided that I could start teaching a math circle on my own. Now, I am teaching a Pre-K math circle for little kids that are about four or five years old. The kids are used to me now, and I am really enjoying the teaching experience.

Kids are much more involved in the class when:

  1. The problems involve them
  2. They get to choose what the problems are about, or at least change the details of the problems
  3. The problems involve real-life situations, especially if they have to do with their life
  4. The problem has a fairy tale, or some other kind of story woven into it.
