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.
