Bedtime Math Improves Math Performance

Bedtime Math Improves Math Performance

New findings from a study led by University of Chicago psychologists and published in the Journal of Experimental Psychology shows that Bedtime Math, already proven to boosts kids’ math performance, has effects that last for years.

Initial results of the study published in Science found that within just one school year, kids who did Bedtime Math improved their math achievement on average by three months more than children who didn’t. Most notably, kids of the most math-anxious parents who chose to do Bedtime Math gained an extra half school year of skills.
