We're having SUM fun now!

Camera_dump_053There's a new math post up at Serendipity. The gnomes will be back with another adventure after Christmas. Until then, we're playing with our friend Plus. Lots and lots of ideas there for addition adventures. There's a list of living books for math and suggestions for ways to look at numbers and to represent them in pictures. Later in the week, numbers will go three-dimensional as we build equations out of clay.

Camera_dump_043_2 There's no telling where they will go. (Yes, it's a soccer field. Out of gemstones. Apparently, our gnomes got game.)
