Funville Adventures, our math-inspired children’s fantasy with Allison Bishop, had a great first day on Kickstarter! We are very excited by the interest and support that it is getting! You can check it out here.
Our goal with this project is to introduce children to mathematical concepts in a story-based form, appealing to their natural creativity and love of stories. We believe this will help reach not only children who already love math, but even those who may have struggled with typical classroom presentations.
And here’s a small preview of the story with some pictures!

The siblings discover that Funville is full of surprises; one never knows when something will be shrunk
