child, 8 years old and up, to learn to solve

algebraic equations such as 4x + 3 = 3x + 9

and 2(2x + 1) = x + 14 in only six lessons—while having fun!

The secret to this success is our unique visual and kinesthetic approach combined with a pedagogically sound sequential development of concepts. The Hands-On Equations Deluxe Home Set is normally $79.95 and includes the DVD instructional manual and introductory verbal problems workbook.

Now you can add a

Thus, you could easily make only 2-4 problems per page, with large font and lots of working space - great for children with ADD or learning disabilities.

Even more: instead of choosing only one operation, you can also choose addition and subtraction, or multiplication and division.

This worksheet generator makes printable worksheets for both

- basic addition/subtraction facts
- mental addition and subtraction (for example, whole hundreds)
- multiplication tables, including missing factors
- basic division facts, including with remainders
- mental multiplication and division (for example, by powers of ten)
- column-form addition and subtraction, including subtraction with or without regrouping
- column-form multiplication (long multiplication)
- long division
- simple equations using either an empty line or a variable (choose missing addend/subtrahend/minuend/factor/dividend/divisor). This is usable from first grade up to pre-algebra/algebra 1!

Many people have of course shared links from my sites (thanks!) even without those buttons, and you can see the number of "tweets" or Facebook "likes" now by surfing on the pages.

Anyhow, now such sharing is even easier for you! Feel free to share the pages on my sites at Twitter, Pinterest, Facebook, or Google+.

I'm sure some are wondering when I'm going to have Math Mammoth on Facebook. Well, I've considered it several times over the years, and my main problem has been the lack of time. but, I AM now planning on it happening sometime mid-year this year... stay tuned!

The video itself is a quick watch, but after that, take a look at this page that shows in detail the mathematical objects used, as beautiful 3-D art. Included are such well-known artifacts as the five platonic solids, cycloid curves, Galton Box, Leonardo's bridge, Tangram, and The seven bridges of Königsberg, and more. It's sort of like visiting a museum of mathematics.

Which brings me to an idea: you could use any of those objects as a

The movie and the site is by Cristóbal Vila, from Spain, and thus the website is bilingual (Spanish & English).

He's also made another movie, Nature by the Numbers, which features the Fibonacci series and the Golden Ratio.

- Largest prime yet found

Curtis Cooper at the University of Central Missouri in Warrensburg has found the largest prime number yet. It is a Mersenne prime, which means it is of the form 2^{P}− 1, where P itself is prime. The one Cooper found is 2^{57,885,161}− 1, and it has 17 million digits!!

- World Maths Day

World Maths Day will take place on March 6, 2013. Last year, more than five million students from all around the world took part in this fun, free contest!

- Math Teachers at Play carnival

The name says it all... this is a carnival for all math teachers or parents who teach math... filled with fun ideas & posts.

- Complete the Quadrilateral

Join the dots to complete these quadrilaterals. Where there are options, try to find the one on the grid with the largest possible area. The author, Fawn Nguyen, wishes, "If appropriate for your class, I hope you'll consider doing this lesson — it'll make the hours I spent recreating the handout and key worth it! :)" Great for 5th grader or whenever you study classifying quadrilaterals.
