If i can have only one, which math activity book is best for a bright five year old?

Heard you on Science Friday today.

Hi Francine, welcome to Natural Math! Three of our books are for parents and teachers of children like yours – Moebius Noodles, Socks Are Like Pants, and (coming this Fall) Avoid Hard Work. Socks Are Like Pants has visual arts and movement activities for early algebra; Moebius Noodles, hands-on modeling and pretend-play and storytelling; and Avoid Hard Work is all about problem-solving. I hope that helps you match what your child likes most; if not, you can always dial the PDF price to zero to check out the book.

Hi Maria,

I have two daughters one is 7 years old and the other is 3 year old. I was quiet curious to know ,if by reading your möbius noodles,will my children be able to start doing calculus?

If yes then do you recommend any book,so that I can teach them by myself?

Hello,

The book has some calculus ideas, such as infinity and infinitesimally small objects, in the fractal part. It’s for parents and teachers who want to gain activity ideas to use with their children. You can look at sample pages here and see how they fit your style. I hope you and your two children enjoy it!

My daughter is 9+ and right now reading camp logic. Can this book be useful for her as well

I hope you are enjoying Camp Logic at home! I’ve done activities from Moebius Noodles with teens and adults – if they wanted inspirational play. People who seek more formal, rigorous mathematics may want to look at other titles, such as our upcoming book The Fantastic Five: https://naturalmath.com/2019/01/newsletter-january-16/ If the sample pages of Moebius Noodles are not enough to decide, maybe download the whole PDF to check it out?

I have a 23 year old special needs daughter. Her math is still trying to get into multiplication and not totally set with addition and subtraction. Which book would be best to get her into first?

Julie,

What helps a lot of special needs learners of all ages? If I had to pick just one thing: MODELING.

You can see 2*5=10 as a formal rule, but that’s hard to learn. Think of fingers on two hands; or all the outfits you can make with 2 skirts and 5 shirts; or an egg box from Europe (two rows of five eggs); or skipping a stair five times; or two nickels. Models!

I would recommend either Moebius Noodles, or Multiplication Explorers course or even just its poster https://naturalmath.com/multiplication-models-poster/ Write reach.out@naturalmath.com if you’d like to talk more.
