  1. 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.
      Toodles Mathspig
      PS: Soz about the slow reply. It was 43C in Melb yesterday. I was a sweaty, sweaty mathspig.

    • Hey Mike, Yes, indeedy, I saw the world wide publicity for the smart maths work. Pass on my congratulations. Woo Hoo! Mathspig
