One of the partners of the national summer reading program that takes place at Franklin Township Library (as well as other libraries around the state and across the nation) is a New Jersey organization called Bedtime Math. Its mission is to make math a part of everyday life, just like reading.
The easiest way to try it is to download their mobile app for smart phone or tablet, which you can find here:
(You may also see each day’s problem on the website at bedtimemath.org.)
Once you install the app, you can visit daily for the “Math Problem of the Day,” available at three levels of difficulty from preschool to older students, and find a “surprise” math activity as well. The problems are fun and intriguing and are accompanied by colorful photos or graphics. If you miss a day, no problem! All of the earlier problems are available when you click on the “Explore” button.
It’s fun, it’s free, it takes only minutes per day, and it works on both Apple and Android formats. Let us know how you like it!
