…aligns with Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSS-M)

In her Math in Motion workshops and books, Barbara has created a wonderfully delightful and practical guide to using origami manipulatives that makes math come alive in the hands and minds of all children.

Math in Motion is not a book about teaching your child *how* to do math. Instead, it is a book on teaching your child to *want* to learn math.
