Maya and Daphne Find Math in Their World

This is a video the girls and I made when they were 4 and 6, in response to 1st and 2nd graders who thought math was only found in worksheets and classrooms. I discuss this clip in my book, and needed a permanent home for the video, so here it is!

In case you’re wondering, Daphne named that bald baby doll Rapunzel on purpose. She has a well developed sense of irony, that kid.

Mathematically, my favorite part is Maya’s exploration of the leaf, because she asks and answers her own question.
