Meet the characters of “Arithmetic Village”...
Polly Plus collects jewels slowly and methodically.
Linus Minus is carefree and loses jewels.
Tina Times is impatient and quick, she adds jewels in groups.
King David Divide is fair and equitable, he shares jewels between villagers, if there is a remainder they go to his little dog, Rover.
Purchase the five short rhyming books, create a treasure chest (math kit) and practice addition, subtraction, multiplication and division!
Children then pretend to be different characters and play games and activities offered on this website and Arithmetic Village’s Pintrest page.
Introducing math creatively helps to develop a deep understanding of core concepts, and supports a lifelong love for learning.
About Kimberly Moore
Despite being the writer and illustrator of Arithmetic Village, Kimberly never really loved math, especially trigonometry, but that’s another story. A brief encounter with a math poem over ten years ago, inspired her to write this series of books so children everywhere could have access to a whimsical, creative approach to math.
Kimberly has had roles of teacher, early childhood director, staff trainer and parent educator. Her favorite role is that of mom of three daughters (18, 16 and 7).
She adamantly believes in the sacred journey of childhood where learning should be effortless, gentle and fun.
