Let’s show kids that math can be fun outside school – that it’s a part of regular life. And parents can help teachers do their job by keeping the learning going at home!
As part of our White House Early STEM Symposium commitment announced this year, teachers from across the country will introduce Bedtime Math to families at parent-teacher conferences this fall. 19 school districts in 6 regions, from New York City to Ventura County, are participating in the initiative this fall, reaching literally hundreds of thousands of kids.

Whether or not your school is part of our White House initiative, any educator can play a role in changing family culture around math. Here’s how:
- Tell your students’ families about our wacky nightly math problems. This is a great parent-engagement activity that can be part of any home routine: dinnertime, bathtime, breakfast time. Some ideas:
- Download our parent flyer and share it in your next parent newsletter! [in English] [en español]
- Share this ready-made presentation at your next Back-to-School Night, Family Math Night, or other family gathering
- Share our app video with parents for a quick demonstration of how to use the Bedtime Math app.
- Please do not do Bedtime Math in class or assign it as homework! It’s essential to our movement that kids see Bedtime Math as a “home thing,” not a “school thing.”
