TEACHING EXPERIENCE

For more than three decades, Denise Gaskins has helped countless families conquer their fear of math through play. As a math coach and veteran homeschooling mother of five, Denise has taught or tutored at every level from preschool to precalculus. She shares math inspirations, tips, activities, and games on her blog at DeniseGaskins.com.

MY TEACHING STYLE

As a homeschooling advocate, Denise says, "I encourage parents to look beyond the textbook -- a useful tool, but such a limited one. We want to explore the adventure of learning real mathematics, math as mental play, the essence of creative problem solving. This is what we need to teach our children: Mathematics is not just rules and rote memory. Math is a game, playing with ideas."
