Multiply With Beauty

To bring a smile in my child's face through colours and art has been my favourite research and hobby these days, by innovating visually stimulating Mathematics ideas. We have fallen in love with abstract art and we never get tired of creating these abstract Mathematics arts. When we end up integrating Mathematics and arts, I almost feel like it is a marriage between the rational/logical left brain and the holistic right brain.

At this end, this is how we comprehend multiples of three. Take a look at our "Multiples of Three Pyramid".

I dedicate this post to all the tiny tots out there in the world who think Mathematics is difficult. My dear ones, Mathematics is so colourful, Mathematics is beauty. Once you discover an interesting way to learn Mathematics, I am sure you will fall in love with it. 

So, you think you have to get bored with those multiplication tables. Not necessary. There are other ways too. 

Enjoy Your Mathematics,

Art Is A Good Teacher

Well, I think  I am a better learning coach than a writer. Many of my ideas, experiences, thoughts and insights on learning never get translated into a blog post here, because I struggle to write. I hunt for words and I give up. So, now, I will try to be as authentic in writing what I feel at this moment and try to create this post, so I could make this post simple and real, straight from my heart. 

An art that we did almost 2 years back became very noticeable on my facebook wall. Being an extrovert, naturally I am very excited by the energy and all the attention. The acknowledgement and attention made me feel proud like a little child. Moreover, I am so crazy about innovating learning methods for Math. I immediately felt that, this could be my next post. Long time, I have not been posting anything in this space. Learning Math through art has really been a healing and joyful experience for us. 

I thought it was a simple art. But this simple art helped us develop almost all basic Math concepts and skills such as addition, subtraction, division, multiplication, measurement, fraction, patterns, colour mixing, fine motor skills, visualization skills and what not. All in a very NATURAL WAY. Learning best happens naturally when we involve ourselves in an activity out of sheer joy. 

And, art is indeed very magical and real great teacher. And, what else could be a treat for visually stimulated children.
