A friend recommended the app and website Bedtime Math. I am not sure about at your house, but we have been seeing an increase in the amount of time our school is spending on problem solving. Don’t you remember doing those dreaded “word problems?” The wonderful part of this site is that each day they try to connect the problems to something going on in our world. Yesterday’s was about the Kentucky Derby and today’s problem was about Mercury orbiting between us and the sun tomorrow.
This is a great five minute routine to add into your day.
