We’re launching Math in a Snap, our first photo challenge! This month’s theme is Find Cool Shapes in Nature. We’re asking our Bedtime Math fans, even our littlest ones, to head outside with a camera (and some adult help) to photograph math shapes in nature. This weekend or in the waning days of summer, we’re challenging you to spot geometric shapes out in the world. Circles, spirals, squares – they’re all out there.
You know that our favorite way to make math fun is to cuddle and snuggle while sharing a math problem with our little ones at the end of the day, but as part of last week’s book launch celebration, we chatted with parents on Twitter via The Maker Mom’s #STEMchat about other ways to playfully engage youngsters in math.
