Blog and Book Updates
A quick peek at what I'm working on
I started a blog series called Roadmap to Mathematics, with brief outlines for each grade level and playful ways to approach each topic. So far we've covered:
Looks like I need to get back and finish the upper elementary levels soon...
I've gotten some fantastic comments back from my beta readers on the Math You Can Play number games series, so I'm working those into the text now. One result has been to turn the books around: what I thought was the introduction turned out to belong at the end, and what I thought was the conclusion got moved to the start. We're still on track for spring 2015 with the first two books of the series. Next stop: find a professional editor.
Recrafting the Let's Play Math ebook as a paperback has turned into the project that never ends. I've added a new Frequently Asked Questions chapter and a section about what it really means to understand math. I've got a whole folder full of notes, tweaks, and other things to add before sending this back to my beta readers for approval. Target publication date: Fall 2015, if all goes well.
[For those of you who already have the ebook -- don't worry, I'll update those files at the same time. I think most vendors send updates automatically, and for the rest, you should be able to contact Customer Service for the new file. I'll let you know when.]
And that's all I have for now. I hope you found something interesting or useful. See you next month!
