There are so many ways to inspire yourself and your children with Math. Start with Mathemagic's original Arthur Benjamin. Watch him race calculators in "A Performance of Mathemagic" then skip over to his other talk on "The Magic of Fibonnaci Numbers". Jump into the podcast on TedRadio Hour on "Solving for X." Looking for stimulating math reading at home? Check out Murderous Maths, Life of Fred, and Sir Cumference for engaging stories all incorporating maths! Looking for ways to apply strong mathematics? Look at the highly acclaimed Art of Problem Solving, Math Olympiad and the math behind cryptography. Want to incorporate more games and toys? We love Fractiles, Logic Links, 24 and Math Dice.
