Oh my God you are so great!!! How have I not known about you for so many years?

The way you look at Maths is just so refreshing. I am starting an educational charity here in the UK to promote Making through Maths. Kids just seeing their Maths doing stuff – robots, models, dance, art and programming.

I am going to be following you now till the grave. Thank you so much for this body of work.

Hello Gabriel,

We are sooooo thinking along the same lines it is uncanny. We tend to teach maths today as if it were Latin, a dead language, instead of showing students where and how to use maths in everyday life. I will investigate your website with total enthusiasm. And keep up the good work.
