One opinion about when to introduce formal arithmetic (workbooky math) to children. What is the opportunity cost of too-early mathematics?Criss-Cross Multiplication

An algorithm for two-digit multiplication that is easier for mental math.Party For Polyglots

A brain teaser puzzle, not too difficult.Coloring Knots

A topological doodling project.
