    East Bay Minecraft—Players and Parents—Meetup

    Hi Mary Jean. I noticed that you're interested in education through Minecraft. I have very similar interests and have begun developing some mods for the game that introduce science and education into the game. The most mature one teaches geology by introducing psuedo-realisti­c rock strata and ore deposits (for over 70 types minerals). I'm looking for like-minded people and a way to use my scientific knowledge and technical skills to educate kids and adults through technology.

    I've seen lots of weak programs for teaching math, no great ones. I heartily suggest reading Number Sense, by Stanislas Dehaene. He is by far the leading researcher in the neurobiology of math. How Mathematicians Think is another book that might be worth reading.
