The post provides four suggestions on how to put this into practice:

* Make it visual

* Make it reflective

* Make it practical

* Make it ubiquitous

Victoria Martin: Math Team Queen - KC Fringe Festival review by surlywench | KC Stage Reviews

It's a drama about high school. And math. That kind of sounds like a recipe for a really horrible play, but it is so not that. Even people who don't like math (or didn't like high school) can enjoy this play, though they may not be as geek-happy as I was with the recitations of the first 52 digits of pi.
