Denise Gaskins is a veteran homeschooling mom who loves math, and she delights in sharing that love with young people.
"Math is like ice cream, with more flavors than you can ever imagine," she says. "And if all you ever do is textbook math, that's like eating broccoli-flavored ice cream!"
Denise has taught or tutored at ever level from preschool to undergraduate college physics, in classrooms, workshops, laboratory classes, and one-on-one. She had written four books on teaching math in the home school, and she publishes the bi-monthly newsletter "Mathematical Adventures" for upper-elementary through high school students. Denise lives with her husband David, five kids, and an assortment of critters (wild and domestic) on a farm in central Illinois.
