Two Math Moms
Amanda and Lindsay are two moms, that simply put, love math! We started off as roommates in college (Go MSU!) and discovered our shared love of math as undergrads. Later we both moved to Chicago for graduate school, met our husbands, started families, established our teaching careers in the Chicago Public Schools and, as fate would have it, eventually teaching at the same school!
Our goal is to make math fun for everyone! We believe that we can instill a love of math for all kids through play, games, and movement.
This is why we created Making Math Fun! We believe that having games readily available in your child’s home will help them build their confidence, improve their mental health and cognitive and social skills. They also help build the intrinsic motivation that many children lack when it comes to math. We know that partaking in these daily math games is the missing key that many children need to unlock their love of math and become successful in their math journeys.
We would love to share, support, and help parents and teachers by providing resources, recommendations, and fun math activities to help your kiddos on their math learning journey.
We are so glad you are here and hope you follow us and join our community and we promise to support in any way we can!
