Mathematics is a powerful and useful tool in our daily lives. From learning to cook to managing a budget, students will quickly realize that math is essential both inside and outside of the classroom.
With summer approaching, students are prepared to relax and spend time with friends and family. As you plan your family’s time together, it’s important to remember that summer vacation could potentially lead to the “summer slide.” In fact, research has shown that, on average, students lose one month’s worth of what they’ve learned over the course of the school year during summer vacation. As a result, students might feel less prepared when they return to school in the fall.
Fortunately, there are plenty of ways to keep your child’s math skills sharp without it feeling like summer school work! If you want to know how you can support your child’s learning over summer break, here are some fun summer math games and activities.
