* Lots of kids have written to ask if we will make more games for Math Cats. We were very happy with Jeri's reply to our explanation:

hi math cats i think your site is cool but.... do you think you could put in more games and mabey some quizzes too like how well do you know about cats stuff like that ty

Hi Jeri, a lot of kids ask me for more games. The thing is, I want Math Cats to be mostly about exploring math in creative ways. Games are not creative. You have to follow someone else's rules to play a game. Games can be fun, but I want kids to see that math is fun even without games. I'm afraid if I put too many games on the site then a lot of kids will never explore the other parts of Math Cats. Plus there are lots of other math sites with math games, but there are not so many sites with open-ended math explorations. I am trying to do things on Math Cats that other sites aren't already doing. But I do like your idea about a cat-related quiz. I will think about that and maybe someday I will post a math-cat quiz game.

This is Ninneyman and we love math cats!

I've never really liked math because it was always my worst subject. I could never go home and just study and memorize, it was (and still is!) difficult. But, on the day I was suppose to give my math presentation
(I was SO nervous everyone had already gone before me and got low grades!) I showed my whole class your website, everyone loved it! It went great with my presentation and i was the only person to get a "100"!!!! Thanks Math Cats!!!

Thank you again, Kalyn!

Thank you math cats for saving my life, in class. I don't like school. In our class we got a grant. We bought lots of stuff. My favorite thing is the Labtops. We have 18 of them. This is how you saved my life. We worked on mathcats the whole hour of math class. It was so much fun. My teacher loves it so much that we have did it 2 times. Thank you for making mathcats. I love mathcats. It is a great thing to do on a rainy day. The best thing about is you learn new things. Thank You!!!

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 :),

(Math Cats quietly began to take shape in cyberspace beginning with the magic chalkboard on July 13, 2000. Members of the LogoForum mailing list were invited to visit Math Cats in a posting on September 22, 2000, beginning an ever-widening ripple of positive feedback. A member of the LogoForum passed the URL to a home-schooling parent (Marji), who passed it to two home-schooling lists. Math Cats was listed at Yahooligans beginning September 29, 2000 and began to be discovered by other search engines on October 22nd. Many visitors began to arrive through links from other sites and through postings by fans of Math Cats to chatboards and mailing lists. Thanks to all of you who appreciate Math Cats!)
