Dr. Maria Droujkova (@mariadroujkova) and Yelena McManaman authored the book, Moebuis Noodles, to engage kids with early math concepts. Their inspirations are:

  • kids—who have great imaginations and love math wonderlands when presented in a fun way
  • the crowdsourcing movement—parents and teachers are on board!
  • DYI projects—where there lives endless creativity

Offered under Creative Commons, Moebuis Noodles offers a much needed alternative to the boring and repeatitive early math materials used to reach most schoolkids today.

Congratulations on the successful crowdfunding project. I can see that it has yielded great results and even greater ideas. While education has seen huge improvements in the past years, it is astonishing how even the math education for young children is missing this kind of creative do it yourself spirit! I cannot even start to think how kids in China could benefit from such a system that would support imagination, fun and play. In the west it is almost as if "math kids" are being marginalized by making classes non-favorable. Pitty that there was some disturbing background noise in the video, but thanks for the inspirational insight. However surprised that things are still the way they are, it's never too late to change the system! -Genji

I am a blogger, education consultant and developer, focusing on young children. I homeschool my son and organize classes and events for kids. Online, I help other parents collaborate around advanced math for young children. I am also co-authoring a Creative Commons, crowd-funded book "Moebius Noodles: Adventurous math for the playground crowd" which is coming out this year.
