About Denise Gaskins

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.
