Welcome to Fractal Kitty! This website is under construction, so please bear with me as I get everything organized to post!
This website is meant to provide parents and teachers with resources, ideas for exploring, and ways to have fun with mathematics. I have found through the years that I get a lot of parents and students needing various forms of help in math. I started this website to share what has worked in my practice. Growth mindset is a core belief for me. I truly believe that mathematics is a field of study that anyone can grow in. It takes time, but that time can be fun, full of passion, and integrated with projects and application.
I sometimes feel like a broken record. I repeat so much in conversation with parents, educators, and students when I consult with them on learning math that finally I sat down and brainstormed a website to share my ideas and best practices that I have used through the years. My plan is to share my stories, syllabuses, games, reviews, poetry,… the list goes on. I look forward to what this grows into. As a reader, please let me know what would be helpful and what you’d like to see here.
This week I created a logo, posted my Marie’s Atlas books here for free (It’s been 5 years since I wrote the first book!), and organizing all of my materials for web content. I am still pondering if I should go by grade or concepts or age for organizing materials. I homeschool my own children and find that Grade is meaningless, but concept or levels of math are not.
I am also trying to be able to earn as a tutor/artist/author without setting up paywalls, annoying ads, or seeming pushy. For now I have decided to use affiliated links and donate buttons. This way if people can and want to pay for content, they can.
I hope Fractal Kitty will help make math fun and meaningful for many. Thanks for support and please subscribe.
