For the last 20 years Mikhail Feldman is teaching Physics in NYC public high school.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
As many other sharing and publishing teachers, I started offering my educational products on famous Teachers Pay Teachers. Amost immediately my FUNNY PROBLEMS became very popular among my colleagues. For me it was a clear indicator that school children as well as their math mentors got tired of boring textbooks' clones. They need something fresh, vivid, inspiring. I believe that FUNNY PROBLEMS are able to ignite children's interest to such important field as mathematics. Later I realized that education should not start and finish at school. Parents and grandparents are the first and the most important life-long teachers of their children. So, I decided that my collection of funny problems should be available for Family Circle.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
When I create a new problem I imagine a smile on a kid's face reading my text. Nothing is more inspiring than this picture.
Children love to solve my Funny Problems because while THINKING – they SMILE! If you dream about your talented and gifted child falling in love with Math, then spend some time solving problems TOGETHER. Do it one-on-one or, which is the best, within your family circle. Funny Math Problems is the source for family fun, love, and better relationships between grandparents, parents, and your children.
