MATH TRAVELS, vol. 1 (gr. 1-9) – Videos & Free School-wide PDF license

Math Travels is based on classroom research of what might be when young students engage mathematically with a sense of wonder.

Each Math World is original work of art depicting a unique setting, like a beach, an underwater world, or an archaeological dig, to give the aesthetic feel of a new destination and experience.

Math concepts are carefully chosen, represented, arranged, and juxtaposed to reveal patterns, elicit wonder, offer low floor access with minimal prerequisite knowledge, and high ceiling depth and complexity.

We are working on Math Travels volumes 2 and 3, for a total of 12 worlds of pattern and beauty, and we’re in the process of translating the activity prompts for the placemats to various languages.
