How to Join a Math and Science Community of Online Learning

Jul 08, 2022

Let's fact it. The computer age has infiltrated most of our lives, save for those who choose for it not to. If you're reading this blog, you most likely use your computer on a daily basis. Modern technology and the computer age are sweeping the planet, increasing in popular use as well as changing our minds, influencing our psyches, social lives and yes, our education.

I have been a homeschool and school educator since 1997, but entered online teaching in spring 2011. Since teaching online, I've not looked back. I've transformed from an in in-the-classroom teacher marching to the beat of every principal I've ever worked for, to an independent online education offering courses I chose to teach according to my passion and talents and in conjunction with what is needed in the home and school communities.

I've always had a great passion, love, and talent for making maths more tangible and beautiful (MathArt). I've nurtured and grown a pool of in-depth scholarly zoology, botany, Marine Biology, and geology courses for learners who want to go into greater depth than most curriculum has time for in these fields of science study.

What is NatureGlo's MathArt Online Courses?

Since 2003, I've written and taught curriculum called MathArt geared for students ages 10 and up. Here are some of the things I teach student sin my mathArt classes.

  1. We start with learning ancient mathematic history with the Greeks, Babylonians, and Egyptians.
  2. Find, describe and create projects around real world connections found in geometry and nature by looking at the. most common patterns in nature (circular, polygonal, hexagonal, symmetry, lines).
  3. Find, describe, and create projects about the Fibonacci and Golden numbers found in art, architecture and nature.
  4. Study and create works of art following famous "MathArtists" such as Leonardo da Vinci, M.C. Escher and Benoit Mandelbrot, the father of fractal geometry.
  5. Students create MathArt projects around a topic they're most interested in studying.

When I launched my site,, independently, in summer 2017, I knew that it would not be an easy undertaking. Running a website, doing all of the marketing, etc. Ive know I'm doing something unique in K12 education

The summer of 2018, I launched something new and rare: blazing a new trail as an independent educator, I've now opened my online math and science courses for kids ideally age 8+. Not only is the pricing affordable for home and school educators, but this kind of site will foster a much needed online community for home and school educators.

NatureGlo's MathArt and science online courses offers the following benefits:

  1. Affordable lifetime pricing. No more monthly recurring memberships at the writing of this post.
  2. Students self-pacing allows them to take responsibility for their learning.
  3. A buffet of student projects

What Projects Have my Students Done?

Every year I've been blow away by the quality of creative projects my students have produced through my online courses.
