As a homeschool mom who loves math, I want to help other homeschoolers see the variety and richness of the subject. Math is not just rules and rote memory. Math is like ice cream, with more flavors than you can imagine — and if all your children ever do is textbook math, that’s like feeding them broccoli-flavored ice cream.
I've taught or tutored mathematics at every level from pre-K to undergraduate physics — which to me, was just one story problem after another. What fun! Now I write the popular blog Let’s Play Math and manage the Math Teachers at Play monthly math education blog carnival.
Homeschooling for more than a quarter century, my husband and I have raised five children, ages 15yo to adult, at our home in the rural countryside of central Illinois. My hobbies are Bible study, recreational math, and reading anything I can get my hands on.

This book is a treasure to me. It is a delight to have my thoughts and feelings captured by an excellent writer and to have them in a form that is easy to share.
I work with parents and homeschoolers as a math resource. Let's Play Math expresses everything I try to convey, but more clearly and concisely, in the context of parenting and homeschooling. I also found delightful quotations, resources and games that are new to me. I am eagerly recommending this book and the website when I talk with parents.
Denise is generous in her release of the free sample pages. These alone contain essential insights and are only the beginning of a delightful exploration of learning math.
