<p>I've recently discovered natural math, and I've been reading though several books on the topic. I homeschool my two children--7th grade and 9th grade--and math has often been something of a rough spot. We've tried a number of different curriculum choices, even switching mid-year, and nothing seems to be the right fit. In our state, public school students generally have algebra 1, algebra 2, geometry, and sometimes a fourth upper level math. I've been cobbling together my own plan for algebra 1 this year for my older son, and he is decidedly reluctant about the topic. He is not a fan of abstract math concepts that he can't apply to everyday life. I was an A student in math, but I still have to look up how to do certain problems, since algebra was a long time ago for me. My son's stance is that if I don't remember how to do things, that means I've clearly not needed to use the techniques since high school. Therefore, why does he have to learn it? I have to admit I agree with him, and I balk at the idea of covering math topics just so he can have that particular class on his transcript, rather than spending more time and energy on topics that spark his interest and enjoyment. </p><p>As I read more about natural math and ways other families use it in their homeschools, I feel like it's just the thing for my son. He is currently not sure what sort of career or post-secondary education he might want to pursue. Does anyone have any insight into expressing natural math on a transcript in a way that would be successful if he decides to go to college?</p>high schooltranscriptsMon, 20 Feb 2023 11:05:25 GMTPamela AlekseyevCan i use natural math ideas as late as HS?

<p><a rel="user" href="/community/users/7/mariad.html" nodeid="7">@Maria Droujkova</a> </p><p>Hello. I teach common core math 1 (and higher) in a North Carolina public school. I have already moved somewhat away fr "notes and practice" methods toward inductive and discussion methods, and I have small experience with task or project learning. I think that maths learning should come fr experiences. However, I wonder if Natural Math has to start at younger ages to be effective. How might I use your ideas as a key part of high school math courses? Are there resources or even curricula that approach HS math this way?</p>high schoolSun, 06 Feb 2022 13:21:00 GMTDavid HardtMath games for higher levels?

Does anyone know any engaging math games for older kids or higher levels, from pre-algebra on up? There seem to be many activities that folks call "games" that are really logic problems, fancied up worksheets, or drills with pseudo-rewards. I've created a version of the product game that uses variables, a battleship-type game using shapes and Cartesian coordinates, and there's the algebra version of 24; surely there are more out there?!math gameshigh schoolmiddle schoolalgebrapre-algebraSat, 17 Aug 2013 22:50:43 GMTRPershing
