I've realized that all the math and making stuff I've done with my kid, and others kids as well, over the last year is really an extension of the approach I use when teaching Math in Your Feet. Math by Design: Paper Patterns is a story of one activity I developed for my summer programs

**but it is also the best description and illustration of the Math in Your Feet approach being applied to a medium other than percussive dance**.

I've also put a new list of "Key Posts" up on the right hand column of this blog, but I thought I'd share them here as well. I think my favorites are Marveling at Moving Patterns and The Elephant in the Room -- both describe, in different ways, a moment in my math journey when I realized just how connected math (structure, order, pattern) is to our daily lives. Here's the full list:

Finally, I just realized I missed my 2nd blogiversary (back in October) so I'll take this opportunity now to say thanks to all of you who read, subscribe, follow and/or comment in this blog! And, perhaps the Math in Your Feet Facebook page would also be of interest to you as well? It's a pretty fun place, if I do say so myself!
