Valentine’s Day is coming fast! As our friends at GoogolPower.com say, this is the time of year “when symmetrical Valentine hearts flourish, Fibonacci flowers are sold by the dozen, sweetheart candies are sorted, and you can count up all the ways you love your Valentine… and math!”
When you get to the site, you’ll find all kinds of free, innovative activities and suggestions for learning and enhancing math skills through things associated with Valentine’s Day such as:

• Chocolate – Explore fractions with a chocolate bar!
• Candy – Hone your sorting, grouping, and estimation skills with a box of sweetheart candies. Get free math lessons for grades 1-4. Get instructions for a game of “Valentine Candy Battleship.”
• Hearts – Learn about symmetry while calculating the area and perimeter of a heart shape. Get instructions for a game of “Broken Heart Math.”
• Valentines – Try the “Valentine Exchange Lesson.” (Homeschoolers could substitute “support group” for “classroom” in this activity.)
• Solve Some Tricky Valentine’s Math Problems – Figure out an algorithm to solve a math puzzle, and see if you can answer some Valentine-themed word problems.

There are lots of ingenious ideas here and links to further resources too.
