Let’s Start a Math Circle!

Inspired by the book “Math from Three to Seven” by Alexander Zvonkin, my wife and I decided to start a math circle for our 4-year-old daughter.  We invited 5 of her friends from preschool to meet at our house once a week for an hour.  All 5 said yes!

We have two main goals:

1) Show the kids that math is fun

2) Challenge the kids to solve problems different from problems they’ve never seen before

We plan to start each circle with a math-themed picture or chapter book and work through two or three math activities each week.  Some activities will be individual, others will be done in small or larger groups.
