Winter Math

Winter break is right around the corner! This is a great opportunity to take time with your child and connect math to the real world. Below are some ideas that will help get you started:

  • Grocery shopping can involve money, budgeting, estimating, adding, subtracting, and measuring
  • Cooking can involve weighing, measuring, ordering, estimating, adding, and multiplying
  • Organizing for a party can mean matching numbers of people to plates, cutlery, area of tables, ordering food, and seating arrangements
  • Going on a trip by car or plane involves time, distance, budgeting, speed, comparing various routes, and shape scavenger hunts
  • Completing a half finished symmetrical design using playdough (e.g., half a butterfly, tree)
  • Building a snowperson can involve measuring, spatial reasoning, and estimating

These ideas will help your child see the importance of math in their everyday lives through fun and interactive ways.
