I can give him an abstract problem, and he sees it's just a cool problem to solve. But for the middle one, the problem needs to arise in a very natural way. He loves building, gardening, hunting for bugs - anything that scares me! [

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JiBJFNkJyn8][4] Elyse D.: I would like my kids to be capable of figuring out what they need to figure out mathematically. Just for math to be a natural part of life. I have five kids. One child does not really understand why he needs to learn anything if it's not important to his life right then. If it were in his Minecraft game, he would learn it very well. My next son is scientifically minded, always trying to figure out how things work. My oldest one just graduated. My daughter is a senior at a public school. The third grader does not discriminate at all. He loves live things, but older ones like on-screen electronics. The most important thing to me: I want them to love to learn more! [

They think it's the best part of the day. We've done math games, rolling dice and graphing probabilities, geocaching... I am trying to be more mathematically minded. I started looking online, at math games books, and homeschool conferences. I am in charge for developing the 6-8 year old curriculum for our homeschool group this Fall. Hopefully, I will incorporate some of the course. [1]: /storage/temp/124-mpsmooc13_videos13-16.jpg [2]:
