My older son loves math. He gets it from his dad, I have to admit. I wish I could say he gets it from me, but I'd be lying. I am much better using the right side of my brain, which is the creative side. He is a left brained kid and proud of it! And so am I... I struggled with math as a kid. Even in college, I had a math tutor. So, to see him strive in this area, is just amazing.
If your little one seems to be struggling with math, like I did, check out Mathnasium, The Math Learning Center that teaches kids math the way that makes sense to them. It is also a great place if you have an eager learner who wants to learn more than what they are getting in school. Mathnasium creates a learning program specifically for your child.
Math doesn't have to be hard or confusing and at MoMath, they make learning fun. I am all about enjoying education. I did, after all, have a mom who was a teacher and she would always try to make learning a joyful experience for me growing up. I too want this for my children and at MoMath, it makes doing that, simple!
The National Museum of Mathematics (MoMath) helps you see how math is used in everyday life. The space is filled with exciting and entertaining ways to discover how math is the foundation of so many things that we do, daily.
The best takeaway was meeting one of my favorite childhood actresses, the beloved star of The Wonder Years, Danica McKellar. Who recently wrote a children's book that helps young readers grasp the concept of math and numbers for the first time. The book titled, Goodnight Numbers, is for 1-5 year olds. This is the first book of many for Danica as she explained, there will be more to come for all ages. And we can't wait! Goodnight Numbers was a hit in my house, with it's sweet and gentle approach to learning numbers and what they are. We loved this story and can't wait to read more books from her series!
Thanks to The Moms for organizing such a wonderful event that my son and I both enjoyed. We enjoyed it so much in fact, that we have already set a date to return to the museum to explore more. This time with my daughter. I know my daughter will love MoMath just as much as we did.
