Math Place is a growing hub of math materials created by Tom O'Brian and like-minded people.
Math Place makes available materials for learners aged 4 to adult. Some of the eBooks are classics. At the outset Math Place is tiny. The plan is to start small and add materials at frequent intervals.
Learning is seen as an active process involving problem solving, not the result of brute memorization followed by endless testing. The choice of materials for Math Place is influenced by the great psychologist Jean Piaget and the mathematician George Polya.
Piaget:
*Education is provoked adaptation.*
Polya:
*Mathematics is not a spectator sport.*
