My son is four and he loves science and math. I help people and companies communicate their ideas. I develop early childhood activities and write for parents and educators.
My daughter is twelve; we have always done a lot of fun math together. I design, develop and write about learning experiences for anyone from babies to researchers. I started several online educational communities, including the Natural Math network and the Math 2.0 Interest Group. I like to read science fiction, play MMO games, do climbing and parkour, and draw fantasy creatures.
Young children are naturally drawn to harmony, balance and order. They are naturally drawn to math, the math that goes beyond counting and simple arithmetic. Math is beautiful and fun and it all starts early on with a few simple games.
This is what this course is about - quick, simple and fun games that parents can play with kids to explore math.
Every weekday for the next 4 weeks you will see
Once a week you will have an opportunity to join us and other parents in live webinars to learn more about teaching math to your child naturally, and to share your stories.
You can also share your ideas, photos, and stories by e-mailing the group, uploading picture to Flickr, or joining the Moebius Noodles Facebook group.
