I'm helping parents and teachers who do calculus with 5 year olds (and other math adventures). AMA!
Hi Reddit, I am Dr. Maria Droujkova, founder of Natural Math. It is a network of parents, teachers, and authors. Our goal is to help people make their own useful, beautiful, and joyful mathematics. We play and have adventures, like making calculus accessible to young children. Ask me anything!

Update: Thank you for being wonderful. I'm checking in periodically to see that nobody's comment is lost.
