KMUZ’s Steven Slemenda interviewed our family in a two part series for a wonderful program called Poetry on the Air. Thanks to KMUZ and Steve Slemenda for sharing. This show is in the archives on their website, and with permission I am posting it here. My children were appreciative of the experience for the interview. It was such a wonderful exercise for them to reflect on. We are grateful for a way for voices to be heard in our Salem Community.
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.
