I turn to pinterest in order to plan my next meal, to identify the next 100 activities I plan to do with my kid, to build my unrealistic dreamhouse, and to fix just about anything that needs fixing, but in April, I turn to the social media site to help build math awareness. Whether you are a math expert, a teacher, a parent, or anything in-between, check out these 10 boards to see how pinterest has helped create a new way to engage in mathematics. Happy Math Awareness Month!
