About Natural Math, early calculus, and the role of free play in learning. An interview by Luba Vangelova.

“You can take any branch of mathematics and find things that are both complex and easy in it,” Droujkova says. “My quest, with several colleagues around the world, is to take the treasure of mathematics and find the accessible ways into all of it.”

    There were no specifics in the article and I’m quite curious what would a calculus game look like?

    Hi dear
    I have a 4 year old boy, almost 5 who is very keen on math, i taught him whatever i could, as you know math is not one dimensional. I really need your suggestion whatelse to work with him.
    I opened a page on insta, i appreciate it if you take a look at it, @s.ali.356

      Glad you are playing these wonderful games! I checked out https://www.instagram.com/s.ali.356/ and I especially appreciate the creative grid (table) activities you have. Do you have more on them anywhere, or is Instagram where you publish?

      I think you will find like-minded ideas in our books for young children. Just look at 5-8 age band here: https://naturalmath.com/goods/ If you build anything from the books, please drop us a line, here or through the contact form, if you prefer email. There is a whole part on grids in Moebius Noodles, for example.
