In her recent blog post in Forbes entitled "Kids' Math Motivation Stems From Proving Something To Themselves", Rachel Crowell listed the "Small Number" video series as a family friendly math resource:

"Free resources for helping kids connect with math

- The website for the non-profit Mathematics Education Cooperative, which includes information such as this tip sheet about helping kids with homework if they say "I don't get it," "I don't have any homework," or are stuck on a problem.
- The American Mathematical Society's "Mathematical Moments" ("a series of posters that promote appreciation and understanding of the role mathematics plays in science, nature, technology and human culture"), "Mathematical Imagery" and other resources. (Disclosure: I write for the American Mathematical Society, but I wasn't involved in the creation of those resources.)
- "Recreational mathemusician and virtual reality philosopher" Vi Hart's YouTube channel, which features videos on topics ranging from "How much is "about 2" really?" to "Green bean matherole."
- The "Small Number" video series written using First Nations imagery and storytelling, available online for all to enjoy as part of the "Math Catcher" Outreach Program."
