Numeric Roots and Relevance
NumbersAlive! presents numbers as fun and friendly characters who uncover numeric patterns embedded in everything in life throughout the world: in art, science, architecture, sports, nature, culture, and folklore. Products include soft plush numbers, books, apps and games, and a Number Links content platform in development. NumbersAlive! addresses anxiety many students experience while learning mathematics, the difficulties they face in relating to numbers, and the resulting fear of pursuing STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) subjects at a higher level. NumbersAlive! is unique in its interdisciplinary and multisensory focus that crosses the physical/digital divide as well as teaching children that numbers are relevant to every subject.
