For Teachers

Welcome to Math Munch!

We write Math Munch for everyone who takes pleasure in reading it. Most of all, though, we write it for our own students—to share math with them that we find meaningful, amazing, and inspiring. Each week we create a post that curates some of great mathematical resources of the internet. Websites, videos, articles, applets—we share them all to help our students build positive and personal relationships with mathematics.

It’s our hope that students beyond our schools might find inspiration at Math Munch as well. After browsing around the site, maybe you’ll decide that you’d like to share Math Munch with your own students. If so, we’ve put together some resources to help you on your way.
