Let’s Play Math


Let’s Play Math by Denise Gaskins is my ultimate guide for Unschooling math concepts. Denise explains how to keep the wonder and excitement in math. She gives many examples of how to create word problems and math games that teach concepts without officially “doing math”. Math is all around us, and when we use it to accomplish a project the math makes more sense and is both usable and enjoyable. Most importantly Denise explains how to lead your child to an “ah-ha” moment where they can feel the enjoyment of suddenly understanding a concept. This is what math should be about; not the drills and memorization and repetition of math problems. As my children grow I will be referring to this book often.
