Math and Living Books

Some years ago Leslie Payne of Heart and Mind (now mater et magistra) wrote an excellent article on creating a love for mathematics, on getting beyond the "I hate math" and "math is my worst subject" phobia. I found it on the Internet recently and I strongly suggest giving it a read: Poetic Math.

If you get the wonderful Emmanuel Books catalog, you will notice that they have a section dedicated to Poetic Math inspired by this article.

Also, I'll be talking about this in the upcoming webinar: Bringing Joy to Your Homeschool Math and Science Lessons. If you can't make it on April 1st, please know that the event will be recorded and available for free download.
