A consult with Dr. Maria Droujkova

When it comes to children learning mathematics, what are your hopes and dreams? Maybe you want tonight’s homework session to pass without any tears. Are you looking for beautiful math for an artist-at-heart? Or maker activities for a little engineer? Your seven-year-old might be curious about infinity and limits. Or you might want to finally understand fractions now that the kids are learning them. Perhaps you need to help your child get ready for when-I-grow-up plans? Are you healing from severe math anxiety? Does your child have a math storybook in the works?

Let’s work together!

Kind words

Natural Math has been supporting diverse families, communities, and organizations since 1996. We make advanced mathematics accessible in kind ways. Here is what people say:

Suddenly I went from it being wizard magic to it being wizard magic, and I was the wizard.–Colin Taylor, student

Today we learned that letting your inner child learn and play can help us to get distracted from a harsh reality, manage new skills, and pass them onto our kids and students.Inna Golovakha, teacher

Droujkova and her colleagues are striving to empower local networks and enhance accessibility on all fronts: mathematical, cultural, and financial.–”5-Year-Olds Can Learn Calculus,” The Atlantic
