Grape Codes and Napier’s Checkerboard

Check out this new Exploding Dots experience, appearing here in several as Experience 11 of my personal website and as a new puzzle booklet from the Julia Robinan Math Festival.

Here is a PDF explaining the JRMF and GMP collaboration and how to learn more about JRMF. GMP JRMF A Joyful Collaboration


    QUADRATICS, Permutations and Combinations, EXPLODING DOTS, and more!

    Written for educators - and their students too! - this website, slowly growing, takes all the content Tanton has developed in his books, videos, and workshops, and organizes it into short, self-contained, and complete, curriculum units proving that mathematics, at all points of the school curriculum, can be joyous, fresh, innovative, rich, deep-thinking, and devoid of any rote doing! Let's teach generations of students to be self-reliant thinkers, willing to flail and to use their common sense to "nut their way" through challenges, to assess and judge results, and to adjust actions to find success. (Great life skills!)
