Loving Living Math

Loving Living Math

Author Cindy West’s goal in Loving Living Math is to help parents break free from the drudgery of textbooks to experience math in real life, games, and projects. However, this isn’t an anti-textbook approach. Rather, Loving Living Math is a supplemental resource for all grade levels that you can use alongside a text, substituting other activities a few days a week rather than relying solely on the text. While many ideas can be used for high school, most of the book will be helpful for the elementary grades.

This 46-page PDF serves as a how-to book for parents rather than something you give to your children. It includes some sample activity pages and lesson plans as examples for you to try. Throughout the book are lists of some of West’s favorite books, resources, and websites (with hyperlinks).

Among topics covered are logic, problem-solving, creative “skill and drill” ideas, how to use manipulatives, how to integrate literature with math, how to use board and card games for math, and cross curricular activities.

Loving Living Math is a great way to start discovering the fun side of math.
