For Educators: The Web of Compositability is the MOST SIMPLE tool we can use to understand the beauty in relationships of our number system. Not only does it implement the use of basic shapes and patterns, which makes learning Primes and Composites actually enjoyable, but it also utilizes unprecedented techniques in primitive explanation! Take your time to study “The Web” and I promise you the world of numbers will open up. You will find yourself giggling with excitement as you work through the topics, whether in your head or on a sheet of paper. This calls for a new generation of learning. It will generate new forms of memory and learner-methods that could only advance the concepts of Mathematics. As as educator in Phoenix, I have been using “The Web” only to show wonderful results and a drastic increase with student involvement. You will not be disappointed, merely to be left in awe regarding its true beauty.
For Students: As for the learners of this new generation… notice how shapes and patterns can easily be related with functions and equations. The beauty of our universe is best explained in the language of math. But this new concept in Compositability (The Web) does not even act like our primitive form of dull Mathematics, instead it exemplifies the art of Math and how the complex can be perceived in more simple terms. If you are a math student, this will obviously be more than helpful. However, if you are a student of the arts, the sciences, the computationals, or whatever have you, The Web might actually open new doors or creativity within your own realms. There is really no way for me to describe the beauty of its usage in words. I can only compel each of you to delve deep into its mysteries and unlock whatever it has to offer. I guarantee you, for each will be a different journey.

Educator. Mathematics. Science. Philosophy.”The ’12x Spiral’ is a powerful tool that can be used by students of all ages to explore the divisibility of numbers, practice multiplication facts, and help distinguish between primes and composites.  Investigating the patterns within the “12x Spiral” can also provide any eager student with hours of exciting research into pure number theory, including the exciting field of prime numbers.”
-J.W. Gaberdiel

Read an interview I did about the 12x Spiral, here.

Often when we think of numbers we understand it in the format of language acquisition, meaning that we learn it as it is taught to us, rather than coming to terms with the reality of comprehending quantity. Though we ascribe names and symbols to numbers, it is different from language since numbers are the system we use to understand the difference between an object and multiple objects. Its there whether or not we acknowledge it. There is 1 sun in our solar system, no matter how we communicate that info to each other. We have 2 eyes and ears, no matter how that is perceived or described. I say this because numbers are different from language, in the sense that we are comprehending the relationship of quantity and relationship of number systems, rather than fabricating their meaning through the development of culture and custom, as with language.

I was working on a project of layered symbol systems, I call the learning flower. I am developing it as a product (A fridge magnet puzzle). Prompted by initial feedback I began adding layers of numbers around the circle of 12. After working with it for a while I realized that there are certain specific patterns amongst the numbers. The multiples of numbers seemed to form distinct shapes.

I have continued to study it and feel like it may be of interest to others. I think it may help people understand numbers, number systems and relationships. It may also have philosophical implications to systems, forms, as well as dominate and subtle relationship insights.
