My Math Philosophy in a nutshell:

If Math isn't fun, at least some of time,  you might ask yourself "what are we doing wrong?"  Math, by its very nature, is exciting and dynamic.  The study itself is never ending.  There are always new things to learn and explore.   Math is a part of science, music, philosophy, history and so many other exciting things.  A study of math is not simply a study of calculation skills.   There is so much more to it than that.  We over-emphasis calculation skills because they are easy to assign and grade.

Kids are so naturally curious that I believe they are born programmed to ask the right questions.   They want to know WHY, WHY, WHY about everything and they are very observant.  We have to be ready to help them find the answers in a way that is meaningful to them.

So welcome!  Whether you're a math lover and math-empowered or a math-phobic hoping to recover - WELCOME!  I hope you find things here to serve as food for thought and to bring some FUN into the fundamentals of mathematics.
