Well when I first came to changing places I didn't say a thing. Now I wonder where it's coming from. If there is anyone that can teach you such a wide range of material from maths, art, poetry and most important is life skills it would have to be our leaders. Thank you so much.

Poly Plugs and MathMate can be used for a multitude of activities, only limited by your imagination - from counting, understanding place value to graphing and algebra and beyond.
For me personally, I have been drawn back to my love of mathematics. I had forgotten how I learnt to understand math concepts & therefore found it difficult to help my children with their understanding of basic maths. Being involved in this program has given me ways to help my children and to give them the opportunity to develop the love for maths that I had at school. It allows me to work together with their teachers, rather than in a different way.
