Unschooling Math

 

This booklet contains selected stories from GWS's archives and we published three booklets on common homeschooling issues:

Unschooling Math, Life After Homeschooling (grown homeschoolers talk about college and finding work), and Transition from School to Homeschool. Unschooling Math is below for you to download; the others are available for sale at FUN-Books and will be posted as they go out of print.
Homeschoolers and their parents share their challenges and solutions to learning math using a variety of materials and interactions—but rarely math textbooks! This useful supplement helps you lean math in more interesting, meaningful, and practical ways.
