Barbie was wrong. Math isn’t hard. Teaching math in a way that’s engaging is hard. But it doesn’t have to be.
Math is Fun has a page full of resources for parents and teachers. There are shapes, logic puzzles, times tables, but also Connect Four (this teaches what in math?), and a game about creating an alien using coordinates (I thought Etch-a-Sketch was tricky!).
If you’ve got a kid going into summertime needing to pick up their math skills for the coming school year, try checking out Math is Fun for a few ideas.
