Inspired by Calculus on March 2

We had a lot of requests to repeat the Inspired by Calculus online workshop for parents, teachers, and their children ages 5-12. We will run another session with three live meetings, starting March 2. Check it out!

We’ll have a calendar of all upcoming courses very shortly. Please stay tuned.

What do you get from Inspired by Calculus?

  • A highly interactive experience where you make models, talk, and collaborate with other parents and teachers. There are only 25 spaces in the course. 
  • Leading your children or students on playful math adventures.
  • The first meeting in a math circle format (you as a student!) to see how to run these activities, and to get inspired.
  • A day to try activities with children and friends
  • The second meeting to answer your questions, overview other activities, and prepare to do them with children.
  • Three weeks of mentoring and peer discussions on the forums.
  • The third meeting to recap, ask more questions, and stay inspired by calculus!
  • A dozen reference cards (math sparks) to help you try out the activities with your children.
  • Access to the Natural Math online forum to ask questions and share resources, even after the class is over.
  • Most importantly, you’ll get the confidence in your own ability to do math differently in your family!

Go to the course page to try two short, sweet math spark activities with your children, and learn more about the course.


Socks Are Like Pants, Cats Are Like Dogs… Wait, what?!

The pre-orders and crowdfunding prizes are on the way, and our new book that makes bold claims about similarities between different things is out! Get the new preview of the book, read the intro on how to play algebra with children, and then try two activities from the preview:

Discussion Group Shenanigans

Once in a while, when a new member joins our FB discussion group ‘1001 Circles’ we make a number theory greeting card like that. Every number has cool features. Every one!

And every Monday is a PunDay. From this week:


But mostly, the 1001 Circles group has discussion about family math and mathematical circle activities. Check it out. We have plans to produce digests of discussions – if you’d like to help, let us know.
