Libo Valencia

I’m passionate about spreading the joy of mathematics through #MathPlay. Facilitating #MathPlay helps students develop a deeper appreciation for math and empowers them to better understand it. What if math class was every kid’s favorite class?

Mathematics is not about numbers, equations, computations, or algorithms;
it is about understanding.
