Explore My Math Blog

As a homeschool mom who loves math, I want to help other homeschoolers see the variety and richness of the subject. Math is not just rules and rote memory. Math is like ice cream, with more flavors than you can imagine --- and if all our children ever do is textbook math, that’s like feeding them broccoli flavored ice cream. Of course, our students do need to learn textbook math, just as piano players do need to practice scales and football players to do push-ups, but they should never be led to think that routine operations are the point of mathematics.

My other blog, Let's play math!, is a place where homeschoolers can play around with ideas about learning, teaching, and understanding K-12 math. Whether you enjoy math or hate it, I think you will find something useful. So please, drop in for a visit.

Here are a few popular articles to get you started...
