5 Year Old Doo Dah Likes #Algebra

The Doo Dah and I “play math” before she goes to Kindergarten.  We keep it fun, but do some pretty abstract things.  You can really see her thinking as she factors a polynomial.

Algebra w/ Doo Dah (she’s five) #math

People have asked to hear what the Doo Dah is saying, so I ducked the music down.  I know that this may disappoint all of those Herb Alpert fans out there.  Anyway, the purpose of the video is to show that even Algebra (especially Algebra) seems no different from most other games and puzzles.  Just pay attention to Doo Dah’s thinking and her emotion.

I started focusing on Math with two of my children.  Now all of them are asking to play math, including my 12-year-old.  The summer can be a great time to get way ahead in math before September.  We are going to make this one of the fun things we do this summer.  Pretty cool.
