Summer Math & Family Travel Math
Written on August 01, 2008
Did you know that your children could lose one to three months' worth of learning during the summer? Math skills do not need to be lost during the summer. Opportunities to practice math are everywhere and can easily be made a part of so many activities we do. They can be fun activities like card games, cooking, gardening, building, crafts, shopping - talk about fractions as you cut up a watermelon, double a recipe, measure the area for your new garden. You can even find math watching the Tour de France – it has become such a science.
You can find endless opportunities during your family vacation to practice math! Our Family Travel Math list and resources will provide you with many math ideas to keep up math skills during the summer and return to school ahead.
