I'm beyond thrilled and honored to have been asked to contribute a guest post at the Moebius Noodles blog. If you've not heard of Moebius Noodles, here's their wonderful description:
Moebius Noodles is the brainchild of Maria Droujkova of Natural Math, both of whom/which have been instrumental to my growing understanding of mathematics and what math really is all about. Although I am quite comfortable with the math topics that connect to the math and dance we do in my program Math in Your Feet, I knew that there was a way of thinking and seeing math that I did not fully understand.
Over the last year or so following Maria's accounts of math clubs, math treks and, especially, the Moebius Noodles project I have found my way to math. And, I am not ashamed to admit that, as an adult who is remediating herself from years of math anxiety, I have learned more about real math from an approach created for small children than I ever did in high school! My new confidence and understanding is largely due to how Moebius Noodles models math and math learning for parents and families -- one small observation, question, inquiry or game at a time.
Here's the link to my Moebius Noodles post! And, while you're there, don't forget to follow or subscribe to their blog.
