Natural Math’s Course on Multiplication

Dr. Maria Droujkova and Yelena McManaman of Natural Math invite parents, teachers, and math circle leaders to join an open, crowd-funded online course about multiplication activities for kids ages 2-12. Each week there will be five activities to help your kids learn multiplication by exploring patterns and structure. To get your course completion badge, do at least two activities every week. The course starts April 6 and runs for four weeks.

Several hundred participants already signed up. We expect active and diverse discussions about adapting activities to different circumstances, situations, and types of learners.

Back from a long break

I am happy to tell you all that I am back  from a long break and will be posting articles from time to time.  It required me two weeks to get a user ID from my University here in Japan. The user ID will enable me to connect to the University’s network and use the internet.

The content of many recent articles of Math and Multimedia have been relatively higher than the mathematics taken by high school, so I plan to tone down a little bit. Although I want to post undergraduate mathematics in this blog from time to time, the main audience is still high school mathematics students and teachers. Therefore, in the next few weeks, I will be writing tutorials on how to solve word problems, a topic that is requested by a lot of readers since this blog started. Solving word problems will include step by step tutorials and tips on how to solve number problems, age problems, mixture problems, etc.

Aside from problem solving, I am also exploring some software which I will share to you in the next few weeks.  I will also provide tips and tutorials particularly about Open Office Spreadsheet.
