YMB #52 Exploring Math Through Literature: A Conversation with Becky McIntosh
Becky McIntosh can see the beauty and joy in math. She says it comes from practice — that she makes a special point to look for the beauty of mathematics everyone.
Lucky for us, she is on a mission to help other homeschool moms find the same joy in math as well. She is here today on the podcast with an inspiring look at how we can use literature to connect our kids to cool, interesting mathematical concepts. This one is a lot of fun.
