|"As a homeschool mom who loves math, I want to help other homeschoolers see the variety and richness of the subject.... I hope this blog will be a place where we can play around with ideas about learning, teaching, and understanding math. (For me, it usually happens in that order.)" The author homeschools her five children in rural Illinois, having tutored or taught primary- and secondary-level math and physics. Gaskin's blog posts, which date back to April, 2006, include "How To Solve Math Problems," "Writing to Learn Math," "The Game that is Worth 1,000 Worksheets," "Free Multiplication Bingo Game," "Pre-Algebra Problem Solving: 3rd Grade," "The Golden Christmas Tree," "How to Teach Math to a Struggling Student," "The Game of Algebra," "Fraction Models, and a Card Game," "Pre-Algebra Problem Solving: The Tools," "The Mosaic Tile Mystery," and "If It Ain't Repeated Addition, What is It?"
