Each month James Tanton writes math essays for all to enjoy. Here are the latest:
Written for educators - and their students too! - these short, self-contained, curriculum units prove that mathematics, at all points of the curriculum, can be joyous, fresh, innovative, rich, deep-thinking, and devoid of rote doing. Let's teach generations of students to be self-reliant thinkers, willing to flail and to use their common sense to "nut their way" through challenges, to assess and judge results, and to adjust actions to find success. (Great life skills!)
