Educational Applications

On Radio 3 I heard that children have difficulty arranging fractions on the Number Line. Hence I have been dreaming of

  • Mathematical Gardens“, so that Conceptual and Concrete Experiences can be matched:
    • “Digital Number” Patterns as pathways, carpets and curtains;
    • “Digital Number” Ratios as climbing frames;
    • “Digital Number” Shapes as spaces of exploration;
  • Puzzles and Games to practise
  • Competitions
  • and of course software galore:
    • add-ons to spreadsheet programs for example so that diagonal and formatting operations can be carried out at ease…
    • maybe there’s room for ‘artistic spreadsheets’?
