[Note: On November 9th, 2003, a computer crashed at Math Cats, and many children's writings were lost before they had been posted on the Math Cats website. This included pet stories, math story problems, and contest entries, as well as teacher requests for classes of Math Pals. In late November, Mama Math Cat posted an announcement with this sad news. Some of the messages below were written in response to this news.]

I have four pets. Their names are Tony, Loki, Duchess and Annie. Loki and Duchess are cats and Tony and Annie are dogs. Annie and Duchess dies a few months ago I miss them but going to the Math Cats website helps me forget about them for a little bit. Thank you Math Cats!

I love your site.

I was trying to help my 7 year daughter work on a project she had to do on Kangaroos and their life span. The website that you have it wonderful everything is very clear you don't have to look or search as soon as you come onto the site everything it right there. The interactive information when you move the mouse across it is great. Keep doing what your doing this site is very help and user friendly for kids or just people who are not very familiar with how to search on the web.

You guys are number 1 in my book.

I used to have an F in math but now I have a B+! Thank you so much. I don't come here often because I have a lot of homework and I was wondering when do you think would be the best time to come to MATH CATS?

love your website

Hi,

I absolutely LOVE your website. I have a son who is in 1st grade and I currently create my own math problems for him since the homework that he brings home from school is not challenging enough for him. Your website will save me A LOT of time in the future. Your website makes my job of teaching him when he gets home from school just a little bit easier!

Thanks,

[This sweet message refers to the recent crash of the computer holding hundreds of children's contest entries, math story problems, pet stories, number stories, and teacher requests for math pals classes. The Math Cats are devastated!]

11/20/03

I learned about the site because I work for the Association for Library Service to Children, and a committee of our librarians designated your site as a "Great Web Site" for children (see www.ala.org/greatsites).

But the reason I'm using the site is because I tutor a 3rd grade girl who is really struggling with her math. She likes the word problems developed by kids her age, especially - I think they make her feel like, if other kids can do math, she can as well. So I go to your site to check out the activities she might enjoy, and I think it's great!

Thank you!

Hi,

I found out about math cats through another e-mail from a friend of mine. I browsed though the site and quite enjoyed it, especially to brush up on my math skills! I have 4 children ages 11, 9, 4, and almost 2. I know the older two will have some fun with your site.

Thank you for providing such a wonderful website!

I saw a link to your website on Humpherlink.uk. My daughter is 5 and in Kindergarten. We're homeschoolers so I'm always looking for neat sites and yours seems perfect. Our method of homeschooling is unschooling so we have very little structure and follow our daughters interests. The design of Mathcats seemed perfect for us, the way it's open to exploration without a strict line to follow. Mathcats sparked my curiousity so I'm sure that it will help her develop her love of math further.

I am the k-8 math coordinator for the Barnwell 45 school district in Barnwell, SC.
I was doing a search to find material on transformations and just happened upon you website. Since I am crazy about cats it caught my eye.
I really like your website. I plan to use it and share it with my teachers.

10/27/03

Thanks for sending the newsletter and for developing such a fun site. I saw a reference to your site in my husband's NCTM bulletin. I am presently staying home with my son who just turned five. He will be going to Kindergarten next year but I am always on the lookout for things to do with him academically. Anything that will provide a fun, engaging, different approach to counting, number sense, attributes, spatial awareness, etc.etc. is welcome. Most of the activities on your site are beyond him at this point, but it never hurts to sit with him and do the activities together.

I was also a teacher in my past life and will be looking to return to the classroom when Christian goes to school. So, professionally, I am also interested in trying to keep myself reasonably current and love to check out what other teachers are doing. I also find it sparks my own ideas to adapt for my son's abilities when I am privy to the great ideas that are out there.

Thanks so much for sharing your hard work and creativity. Your students and their parents are fortunate.

I guess I really should introduce myself, even though we've already sort of "met" through your wonderful help with a couple of my projects in the MW forum. I teach computers at a private school in Montreal. The students are already pretty familiar with MicroWorlds, as it is used in grades 1-6. The previous teacher, who is on a year's leave of absence, swore by MicroWorlds, and I'm beginning to see why. I guess my main struggle is to get them to start troubleshooting on their own, and experimenting. I would like the students to do more advanced programming than they have been doing, as I know they are capable, but some of the concepts are difficult to get across. I guess my main struggle stems from the fact that I am teaching MircroWorlds for the first time - as a matter of fact, I only just graduated from teacher training college, and didn't originally plan to teach computers (although I'm loving it). Also, several of the projects are very similar to what she used to do, simply because she is a brilliant educator - I would love to attend a workshop or something that would enable me to develop some things of my own. But so far, the MW projects book and the MathCats pages have been my top resources!

>* How did you learn about Math Cats?
I was browsing through the MathCats web sites, (I already subscribe to the MW Forum) and came across the newsletter. As the forum is incredibly useful, I thought, the more I can get of Math Cats, the better...

I look forward to reading more! Thanks for taking the time to create/operate MathCats - it's really indispensable to me. If ever there is anything I can do to help, please let me know.

Hi - My name is Kathy and I'm a Fourth Grade teacher in NJ. I've been teaching for 5 years. I have never come across a more interesting and user friendly math site! I subscribe to Education World's newsletter and I don't remember if you had a link on there or if your site was attached to something else. Either way, I'm so thrilled I stumbled across it! I've decided to try some of the fall Math activities. I think I might do some of the leaf activities and maybe the spider symmetry. I'm also going to encourage my students to enter stories for the contests. They love to read and write and we were just talking about the importance of communication in Math, not just calculation. I look forward to receiving the newsletter and I'm extremely impressed that you do this by yourself...

Your site is really wonderful. I am a stay at home mom with 2 very bright kids! My daughter is pre-school age and I am currently teaching her at home.

I read about Math Cats from my NCTM Newsletter- I forwarded the address to math teachers in my school. I teach in a DoDDS School in England. I teach mainly high school students but provide support for lower elementary teachers. All grade levels of mathematics are therefore applicable!

I just wanted to thank you for sharing. Our child is homeschooling now because we have had problems "communicating" her needs to our school district.

Your site will give us some great IDEA's for Math--so she can really enjoy working.

Wow, what a terrific web site.

I am a pre-service teacher and have got some fab ideas from Math Cats for two of my math projects. One is to do a permanent math centre with various blackline master activities for the kids to do when they finish early with another lesson or at indoor recess. The seat work will cover previously taught concepts which means continual review of these concepts; continually add new activities to cover new lessons; add theme activities (ie) for Halloween etc, and keep the centre area nicely decorated. The work sheets will go on those plastic, stackable folder trays. The kids will keep their completed sheets in a duotang (journal) which the teacher will mark when time permits; when the child reaches certain pre-determined criteria (ie) for every 10 sheets, student gets a sucker etc... That's my idea, anyway, We'll see how it pans out...

I am certainly adding you to my favourites list. I will also be checking out MicroWorlds. Anyway, I have never been excited about math before and, dare I say it, I am now after having visited your site.

Thanks.
A new fan.

Dear Mathcats.com,

I think that this site is wonderful. My math teacher recommended this site to us, because she had used your Exactly...how old are you?, and brought it in to class to show us. I wanted to see it too, so when I got home, I used it and then explored the rest of the site. It is absolutely amazing! It captures the essence of fun that there is in math, to help children become better mathematicians. I especially like the cat pictures on the home page, and the cat head that follows the mouse.

I have also seen the page that talks about Jasmin Floyd, who has Fibrodysplasia Ossificans Progressiva, and I think it is very caring of you to have visited her, and even started 'cat tails' because of her. My best wishes to her and her family. I really enjoyed your site and your thoughtfulness. Do you think I would be a good contestant in your story contest?

Sincerely,

I'm sooo impressed with your web site. You're a godsend! My seventh grade daughter was assigned a math/art project of her choice. I told her that I remembered doing string art as a child, and we found your explanations so thorough.

I just wanted to thank you for creating this wonderful website. I am currently doing my student teaching in a high functioning special education classroom of 1st-3rd graders. I planned a lesson on Odd and Even for my 3rd graders using an idea from your site (The Odd Man out game). My mentor teacher liked the idea so much that she shared it with the principal. I love the school I am teaching at, and hope to get a job there after I graduate. I told both my mentor teacher and principal about the website, yet they were still impressed at my implementation of the game.

Just wanted to thank you for your role in the great relationship I am developing with this wonderful school.

I learned about Mathcats thru my cousin on e-mail. I teach special education in Florida - grades K-5. I am looking forward to learning about what is included in Mathcats. As far as my own children: my son is in first grade, and my daughters are in high school.

Thank you,

Retirement countdown?

Loved your birthday calculator. Do you have one that counts down to retirement? I am in my final year as a Middle School Principal and would love to have a screen saver that counted down my final years as a reminder to hang in there.

(Math Cats replied that a future-dates calculator is coming soon... not as a screensaver but as a new project on Math Cats.)

Dear Mathcats,

Not long ago it was my granny's birthday. We don't know the date of the day she was born on but we know that she was born around the 16th - 18th of December. We also know that she was born a bit before midnight on a friday. If she was born in the year 1921, is it possible to figure out the real date of her birthday?

My family has tried in the past but everyone gets different dates and she is such a special lady that I'd really like to find out for her. We have also looked up her registered birth but found that the date of her birthday was the date that her father made it to the office to register her. This was certainly not the same day as he had to walk to the office for a few days.

If you do find the answer please send me an e-mail.

Thank you very much.

I just logged on to your incredible web site. A friend of mine who home schools her kids told me about you yesterday at our children's martial arts class. I am a public school teacher in Denver, and I have been feeling bogged down by the new curriculum demands of the district. I went into the Math Crafts section of your site, and was elated to find projects that I could actually integrate into what I have to do, and what I have already taught.

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU.
I can't wait to get to school on Monday.

Sharon W.
__________

(follow-up after Math Cats asked which projects were useful):

I am teaching a 4th/5th grade split this year. I am working with the Everyday Math curriculum. It is a great program, and the kids are really enjoying it because they get to do a lot of hands on activities and play many games. I plan on using the tessellation, hexagon tree, and the triangle projects. We have covered these concepts so far, and I would love to give them more experiences that they can do at home with their families.
Thank you again.

Hello!

I wanted to let you know how much I appreciate your site. I am an elementary math coach in Los Angeles. I just spent an hour exploring this site and will be recommending it to all of my teacher students and kid students! I am also going to paste it to my website and introduce it to some credential candidates at Cal State University, Northridge.

WELL DONE! I know that we all need a pat on the back sometimes!

You have asked that your visitors tell you how they learned of your website, so here goes. My name is Erika M. and I recently learned about your website while completing a homework assignment for a graduate course in Logo. I was very impressed with what I saw, so I came back to really look through it. I am also a math and technology teacher for middle and high school. I am so very excited about learning Logo and looking forward to being able to apply it. I am also very interested in teaching other teachers. I have also to some of my family members about your site, so they will be visiting too.

I look forward for your monthly newsletters.

Sincerely,

Dear Math Cats,

I am a cat freak and I am so glad to have a site to help me with my math skills, with a bonus of my favorite animals in the whole world,cats. I once had two cats, but one of them got hit by a car, and to see other black cats on this site makes me happy! I am going to tell you how it is now, without my black cat, Blackie. My brown cat, Brownie, is trying to take its spot by doing the things that Blackie did, like hunt.( a little to much hunting) Before Brownie would just lay around and do nothing, but get fat, all day. Now he does a little bit of both. Now I know this seems silly telling you this story, but I just feel good telling somebody that I know cares about cats.

Jenna

P.S. If you can, can you please write back. Thank YOU for your time.

I visit the Math Cats site often, after my teacher brought in all of these string arts patterns in from your site. one suggestion that I have for you- try to get a string art pattern in the shape of a equalateral triangle. it turns out really neat if you use 3 different colors of string!

I LUV YUR SITE!!!

Dear Math Cats,

I love your site. It is so cool! I like the way it teaches math. It shows kids that learning math isn't always boring; it can be fun, too!

At school, I could just barely handle the hour of math we had. I mean, sure I liked math and my math teacher, but doing a whole bunch of worksheets every day for an hour is not my idea of fun. Here, the way you teach math, I can handle hours and hours of math!

Another great thing about your site is the theme. Many kids are into cats. Cats are playful, loving, cute, and very colorful (In your case). All in all, cats are a great way to teach math.

I bet a lot of kids come on this site every day. You and your fellow kitties did a great job of making this a fun site for kids!

Plus, not only do you have math, you also have some art, letter writing, etc. Kids can come to this site and play the day away while they are learning their math facts, too! This site is approved by most parents as a good learning and having fun site.

All in all, you and your fellow math cats have done a great job of working on this site. Keep up the good work, my math kitties!!

A kid who loves your site more than popsicles :),

I just found out about this site tonight on a gifted homeschoolers email list. I decide to take a look while the kids are sleeping and I am very excited! My daughter is six, gifted, and homeschooled, and math is her weakest subject (grade 2 math compared to grade 9 reading level). She finds it boring compared to science and languages. However, cats are her favorite thing and she will do anything if there is a cat on the page. So I know she will love and learn a lot from this site, just because there are cats of all kinds on it. Thank you for making our life a lot easier (in advance). :)

Hello mathcats,
My name is Jelena R. I am living in Serbia, in Kraljevo small town in central Serbia. I am working at primary school as a psychologist. I came to know about you learning about dyslexia and dyscalculia on site Disscussion Dyslexia Board. The aim is to help pupils in school who have learning difficulties. So, I am the most interested in basic mathematics concepts / sequencing, time, order. I like your bank idea for multiplication, fraction.. I find it very helpful.
I will be grateful if you help me!

Dear math cats,

How do I draw and send pictures to you?
I like your pictures and enjoy playing jumping math cats.
I saw the Art Gallery and I loved it very much because I'm an artist too.

I will send you one of my beautiful pictures if you can tell me how to draw and send them to you.

Sincerely love,
Shea B.

reply:

There are a few ways to send pictures to Math Cats.

1) You can draw it on paper and mail it to Math Cats. The address is in the Math Cats Mailroom. (Please don't fold your paper!)

2) You can draw it on paper and then scan it or take a digital picture of it and send it to Math Cats as an attachment. If you do not have a scanner I think that places like a copy shop might be able to scan a picture for you, or maybe a school or a neighbor can do it for you.

3) You can use a graphics program to draw a picture. For instance, Windows has a "Paint" program in "Accessories." If you do that, save your drawing as a GIF file, not a bitmap file. Send it as an attachment.

4) You can use some of the activities on Math Cats to create geometric designs, then take a screenshot of your design and paste it into a graphics program to crop it and save it as a GIF file. To take a screenshot on a PC, press the "PrtSc" button. To take a screenshot on a Mac is another method; let me know if you need the steps.

Most of these methods will need an adult's help too.

I would very much like to see one of your beautiful pictures. I hope one of these methods will work for you. Let me know if you need more information.

I am a technology specialist for two elementary schools in Macon, Georgia. I came across your site while searching Google for math related websites. I am planning to share your site with all of my teachers (67 of them) and have already shared it with the other 20 technology specialists in our school system. They have really enjoyed it, and I'm sure the teachers will as well. Thank you for your hard work!

I have used your site for a couple of years, first finding it during a search on tesselations. I was able to use your resources and website for a lesson I used while putting together my National Board Certification portfolio. I used it again in a course project for favorite websites. My professor, however, pointed out something that I had never been concerned about... Where is your information? I have not read the articles on your awards (yet), but we would like to see a link telling about your credentials, background, experience... It may be there, and I haven't come across it yet. Help me out, please, so I can get this professor off my back!

Thanks, and I continue to send kids to your site!

You rock, and thank you for a great site to kids

Mathcats really improved my math skills my D went to an A. I would like to know how you can e-mail everyone so soon.

I have a question how long have you had this website? What i like about your site is you dont put us on-line you just answer kids questions. Thanks. Answer my quick question very fast or I might faint!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

- - - - -
reply:

Thank you very much for your nice words about Math Cats. Congratulations on your huge improvement in math skills!

Sometimes I don't reply to e-mails right away but I try to. [Most replies are not posted in the mailroom.] Some websites get too big for their own good and they get impersonal. For me, the best part of Math Cats is the mail I get from kids. I am just one person making this site and I do it for fun. I started it in July of 2000 - that was when I made the first page, the magic chalkboard. But no one knew about it until I added some more pages and started spreading the word in September 2000. That was about 2 1/2 years ago.

Sometimes I write as if I am "Prime Cat" but I will tell you that I am really a human named Wendy.

Take care!
Wendy of Math Cats

Congratulations on a brilliant site - and single handed - I'm impressed. I am a Primary School Teacher in the London Borough of Harrow, London, England. I currently teach year six students, age 10-11 years. I would like to introduce the 'net' and encourage the children to explore and question maths. I would hate the lessons to be so boring and prescriptive that I end up turning children off of maths at such an early age. Our government here tests children in year six, in Literacy, Numeracy and Science and year six can end up being a very stressful year.

I found your site by reading a very old (Spring 2001, Volume 5, Issue 1) of Primary Mathematics- You were one of there recommended websites - from the write up I got the impression that it was a site of high calibre and one that was definitely worth visiting. I was also impressed and will visit again and pass the site on to other teachers / parents and children at school. If you would like a copy of the review I would be pleased to post it to you.

Continue the good work and thank you
Mal

Dear Primecat,
My name is Darran and I am a "nontraditional" student attending Methodist College in Fayetteville, NC. I am 38 years old... We have a 3 year old son and a cat. I am studying to become an elementary school teacher and have not yet decided on what grade I will be teaching. One of the courses I am taking requires a list of useful web sites that we might uses as a teacher. I found the webster sites for teachers.com and scrolled through until I found your listing. I am a cat lover and I can use all the creativeness I can get to help me teach math. Your site is very entertaining and I frequent it often.

Sincerely,
Darran W

I found out about your website through my daughter's school newsletter. It has your site listed as an FCAT math practice site for our children. My daughter is in 8th grade and is in a Algebra Options math class. Math is her hardest subject. She has went back and forth between an B and a C on her report card this year in math. I usually help her through her homework assignments and try to explain concepts to her but she doesn't do well on her test. Hopefully your site will help both of us to help each other and improve her skills.

Thank you very much,
Sheila

I absolutely love your math site. I think it will really appeal to children. The graphics are terrific and all of the activities look really fun. I am doing a web review for a teaching methods class at San Jose State University.

Dear mathcats,

I am a big fan of your website and want to know more. I have an Idea for your future. My idea is that you should make a magazine and call it Mathcats Monthly so how do you like the sound of that? I am your number one fan. Could you e-mail me a picture of the makers of mathcats.com? But if they are ugly do what you think just e-mail me back.

I teach in a French school in Ottawa. I teach all subjects except music and english. I was searching the web for art string activities and patterns. I went on your site and found not only string art but many activities to do with my students. I teach grade five but I've taught at all levels ( K-8) since I started in 1979. I'm also an artist ( water colors) and I'm always looking for new ideas. My son works in a day camp during summer so, I suppose he will take some of your ideas for arts and crafts...

Congratulations for your site. It is colourful, inventive and gives me lots of ideas.

Have a good day and continue your good work!

Hi! I just wanted to compliment you on this website! I'll bet it's a phenomenal amount of work to keep it going and keep updating it, but it's WONDERFUL.

I'm an 8th grade English teacher, and a mother of 2 boys, ages 6 and 12. My 7th grader has had problems with math, and I've used MathCats to help him practice/play with math. It's a lot easier and I think more helpful than having him spend extra time working in a textbook he hates, and has really increased the level to which he is comfortable with math.

We recently had a big round of parent conferences, calling in every student who failed a class for the semester. Many of them are failing Math. I'm not the Math teacher, but I AM team leader, and since our Math teacher is out on maternity leave, I gave the parents of students failing Math the Math Cats address. They really appreciated it, and several of them have e-mailed me with positive comments about the site.

Thanks, and keep up the good work!

1/20/03

I found your site quite by accident when was looking for some way to explain to my son why Calico cats are always female (or at least they always have two X chromosomes; rarely, they may not be female). But, we love math, my husband is a math teacher and a head of school for a school for kids with learning disabilities, I am a school nurse, and we have two children, ages 8 and 11. We loved your site, and I want to spend at least a day or two doing everything on it. You are so, so creative.

Oh, yes, and as for the school nurse thing....sometimes students have to spend a fair amount of time in my office and I love having educational sites for them to access on my computer. So, I'll be using your site occasionally in my school too.

Thanks for your wonderful gift!

Hi, I am a parent of 3 children ranging in age from 7 to 17. I was browsing the net looking for extra math activities for my 7 year old daughter who is in grade 2. She is a very bright student who reads at grade 5 level. She is very quick with her math, so I thought it would be good to give her extra work to keep her motivated. Thank you for the great web-site.

Dear Mathcats,

I have an idea. You should make your website more fun. Make a place that you can sing-along and maybe make some sound thatís mostly the fun thing to do and also make some games! Like math games!
