Learning Without Borders

Parents often ask me: “What are your favorite math resources? And, I usually say it depends on the kiddo.  

Usually I ask myself questions like these:

What are my learner’s strengths?

How does she like to learn? Does she like to: 

– Follow sequences

– Watch someone do something and then imitate  

– Listen to an explanation and then do it

– Discover on her own

– Play a game

What are her interests? 

What math concepts or skills does she already know?

How much prep time do I need to make or create the resource? (or)

What’s my budget to buy the resource?
