Math Madness

One of our lovely homeschool moms, Stacey, put together two math workshops for our group.  She was a math specialist in the public schools in her former life, and had PILES of math manipulatives in her garage.  So much stuff, in fact, that she sent each family home with their own stash.  So, right up front, I gotta say "Thank You!" to Stacey for 1) sending home goodies and 2) tricking my kids into thinking that math is fun!

From the second workshop, I think the biggest hit had to be the geo-thingies you use to make shapes with rubber bands.  Michael decided that if he put two boards together, he'd have more space to make pictures.

William and I played the symmetry game together.

Thomas mostly hung out in the back corner with the older kids.

No caption came to mind

Believe it or not, there was actually talk of a Math Club meeting on a regular basis.  How geek-cool is that?
