Do you like maths?

Most of the "readers" I've met have a pronounced distrust of math. It appears that our cultural narrative divides learners into humanities (history / English / art) and STEM (math / science) types. I don't think this is generally true, but like all stereotypes, it contains a core of truth.

I did well in math lessons. I also had good teachers. My algebra II teacher said, "Fractions can be your friends" and made us all laugh. My precalculation teacher was also my weightlifting trainer and I found him great. I did very well in mathematical sections of standardized tests. And yet I was happy to get math done when I got to college and immersed in all of the reading-intensive courses for my major in English.

Why? I think that's because my math teachers had no history. I'm not talking about inventing a story and filling it with numbers. My teachers simply didn't have a vision of how math is the language of the universe. How the inner order in a mathematical equation points us to the inner order in God. The precision inherent in a complicated pattern like the Fibonacci sequence is present throughout creation. It is beautiful, wonderful and incomprehensible.

Sir Cumference Math Adventures

But stories with numbers don't hurt either. Stories about math, math, and math classes abound today. We have a whole list! (Of course.) Today, however, I would like to watch the well-known Sir Cumference series.

If you have a number of kids at home that you need to teach (or reinforce) math, try a Sir Cumference book. The adventures will captivate your children, even if the younger ones don't quite understand them. The mathematics go well with the concepts of the upper elementary / middle school, so that your older children also benefit!

The Sir Cumference books are from the time of King Arthur. They are fun, smart, and they all use math to solve puzzles or puzzles.
