Creative math

"Alice" is one of my favourite novels but even being a math lover I never noticed any strong connections between algebra and children's tale ( I read it 6 times). That's an interesting discovery. Last week I made a presentation about it in the classroom. My students were just amazed! I strongly recommend teachers to make classes the most interactive possible and always try to be creative.
