This "work-in-progress" EBook by Dr. Waid examines in detail the methods behind The Math Gym games and tutorials. Much of it is an elaboration of W.K. Clifford's great book "The Common Sense of the Exact Sciences". First published in 1876, it appears to be largely unknown to modern educators. This EBook will be continually updated until it covers all of primary and secondary education.
These Mini-Math Talks are short PowerPoint presentations that you can use with your children. Originally designed to cover math that The MathGym-1D game uses but doesn't teach, they have been expanded to include, among other things, a new way of getting kids to understanding the methods of solving equations by treating algebra as a language.
