Many kids (not to mention woodworkers) will say 'I h*t* math!'.But as Kalid Azad of betterexplained.com has pointed out what they are really saying is that they h*t* how math makes them feel.Nobody likes to feel frustrated and stupid.
Presenting math concepts through manipulating a physical 'calculator,' however, goes a long way to not only changing that perception but to instilling an intuitive understanding of the core principles underlying arithmetic, algebra and trigonometry.
Enter Joe Youcha of buildingtoteach.org with his new book 'Framing Square Math'.As the title suggests, the physical calculator placed in the student's hands in this case is the once ubiquitous carpenter's framing square.
Joe's book starts by instilling the idea that numbers not only happen abstractly along a one-dimensional line, but also reflect a real physical value, a distance that is more than just a numerical dimension in a formula.
The square, held against a series of physical objects, shows the real world consequences of their addition (and subtraction).Going another step further, you'll see how the square can automatically generate a coordinate plane along which it can create sl*p* lines of ratios (i.
e.proportional relationships.) This means you can go on to solve for one...
