|Articles, interviews of fellow mathematician parents, narrated videos of paper-and-pen math techniques, and other resources for homeschooling and afterschooling parents. Crowder, an instructional strategist by day, seeks to get parents to feel "comfortable enough with math to teach it to their children through experiences." Past posts have included "How to Teach Right Triangles when Crossing the Street," "Embracing the Not-Knowing at a Homeschool Convention and in Math," "Perimeter and Area of Mommy’s Necklace," "How to Teach Subitizing: 1 – 4," "How to Never Find a Common Denominator Again," "When to Give a Kid A Calculator," "How to Use Prime Factors to Cancel Fractions," "2 Ways to Multiply Mixed Numbers," and "A Quick Way to Learn Completing the Square." MathFour takes its name from the author's belief that "Math Is Not a Four Letter Word." See also Crowder's collection of parent involvement activities, http://thatsmath.com/.|
