    This last week at the local high school math/science night open house, a lady from Conner Prairie (Indianapolis historical and education place) shared how to make a Jackson Cube using as material the several hundreds of Indy Mini Maker Fair announcement cards (about the size of business cards) she had left over from Sept 2011.

    Today, at a local playground, my sons found scattered about a bunch of math flash cards. We picked them all up and built a multi unit cube. The large size and paper stock of the cards made it easy to assemble the eight cubes into a large cube.
