DynaMath’s Blockhead Contest


I used to be editor of a children’s math magazine called DynaMath, which is published by Scholastic Inc. You might say that’s how I got into the math biz, and kindled my love of math in odd places.

I’m pleased to see that the magazine is running an excerpt of Blockhead: The Life of Fibonacci in its upcoming March 2011 issue. Students have the chance to enter a sweepstakes to win one of 25 copies of the book that I will personally autograph.

Teachers can find out more about the contest rules here and about the magazine itself here. DynaMath really is a wonderful resource for students in math classrooms, well worth the money.

If you are a teacher, parent, librarian, or school administrator who is concerned about funding for another math resource, follow this link for suggestions on how to locate money for your school. Click on “New Funding” to learn how DynaMath qualifies for funding opportunities such as Title I.

Yes, I am trying to post here more often. Thank you for noticing. If you want to sign up for my newsletter and claim your collection of free ebooks, go here. Thanks!
