## Learning About 3D Shapes with Atmosflare 3D Pen

I've recently been reviewing and exploring shapes with my daughter. At 7 years old, she knows the names and attributes of basic shapes, so we've been working on understanding them more deeply, and especially seeing how we can break apart and put together shapes to form new ones. As part of this exploration, we've looked at several different 3D shapes and talked about the shapes of the faces. There are lots of fun ways to teach and explore 3D Keep Reading...

## Online High School Math Curriculum Review

I am often asked my opinion about various math curricula, and I love to try out different options to help parents make informed decisions about their child's education. One thing that can be especially difficult is finding the right option for upper level math, particularly if you don't feel equipped to handle higher levels of mathematics. I recently had the opportunity to try out an online high school math curriculum called Mr. D Math. If you Keep Reading...

Are you familiar with the Pythagorean Theorem? Even if you know the equation, do you know what it means? What all the letters stand for? Why it even matters? Understanding and then using and applying the Pythagorean theorem is important for students because it is so foundational. It can be applied to all kinds of right triangle problems in trigonometry and geometry and is incredibly useful in the real world to determine measurements and right Keep Reading...

## Exploring Surface Area of Pyramids and Cones!

It is also a fun, hands-on way to help them form a conceptual understanding, rather than trying to Keep Reading...

## Exploring Surface Area: Hands-On Lesson!

One topic that I believe is too often rushed through, whether in pre-algebra or geometry, is the surface area of three dimensional objects. Because it is often seen as an "easy" topic where students are expected to simply "plug the numbers into the formula," it can be easy to say, "Here's the formula, GO." And while this may work for some students, especially students who have a strong foundation in geometry vocabulary and a strong understanding Keep Reading...
