Hi! It’s Monday, August 13, 2007 and time for Math at ClickSchooling!
Math Night Modules
Age Range: 6-13 (with parental participation and supervision)
“Math Night” is a fun event, supported by the National Science Foundation, that was created for kids in elementary school and their parents. On Math Night, families go to school together and explore math displays (similar to a science fair), make math crafts, and compete in games to solve math problems.
Now, homeschoolers can join in the fun too! At this website you can get free access to the Math Night resources including math displays, crafts, games, and activities. You can print them out and use them to enjoy fun math projects at home.
When you get to the site just click on any item on the icon menu that includes:
- Abacus Arithmetic
- Topology Tricks
- Wrapping Paper Symmetry
- Math is a Piece of Pi
