“Mathigon is a collection of educational resources for children, the general public and teachers. These range from interactive eBooks to slideshows, videos, animations and lesson plans. With colourful design and using many new technologies, Mathigon shows how exciting and entertaining mathematics can be.”
“Mathigon wants to improve the public understanding of Mathematics, why it is exciting and why it is important. And there is no better place to do that than in schools! Teachers are encouraged to use the resources on this site to enrich the mathematics curriculum and show children how fun and beautiful mathematics can be.”
* I expect that teachers will evaluate each resource for themselves before sharing with students.
