FEEDBACK "I love the concepts and the videos are very inspiring." "Many thanks! Caught children humming your songs in the halls!" "I could not keep a silly grin off my face for hours after the concert! Thanks for the delight and fun (and learning!)" "Your ability to ‘reach out’ into authentic education and make a real difference is exceptional. Children in real schools in real time can be engaged to a level they’ve never dreamed of." "I love the artistic rendering of the math ideas as shown on several pages of the research stories. Wow! They are rich and loaded with big mathematics ideas. Preservice students would for sure learn a lot from these documentaries." |
