Learning Maths should be childs play!

I used Scratch http://scratch.mit.edu, Kerbal Space Program https://kerbalspaceprogram.com/ and Minecraft https://minecraft.net/ to teach basic algebra to 1st graders. Blender 3D http://www.blender.org/ is great way to introduce students to trigonometry at a young age. But don’t call it math just let them play. My son is now taking College Calculus in High School. He will have 50 college credits when he graduates from High School in 2014. Get students to play on these tools they will learn math. I am a former high school math teacher, I train college interns in computer science. I worked on Human Genome Project, electric power grids, chip design, state accounting systems and radio telescopes. Make math fun first and early. They will take math because they want to if you let them play early. Raspberry Pi and Mathematica will be great. Use ($35)Raspberry Pi to learn digital electronics, Minecraft, Scratch.http://www.raspberrypi.org/archives/5282
