My Math Manifesto
Successful math literacy is the single most important subject our society can give its citizens. A clear understanding of the relationships between all manner of things, and skill in expressing those relationships, is vital. It is the bones and muscles of a person's ability to use the best gift our species has: the ability to think.

About Froebel Gifts
Froebel Gifts are a powerful concrete-operational tool for building each individual’s connection to the world of the abstract, through art. The blocks allow everyone to make beautiful art, from the youngest child to the most self-critical adult.
And, if you’ve ever thought you “weren’t good at math,” Froebel Gifts show that mathematical understanding is your birthright and your playground.
