Some questions we are often asked… and their answers:
How do I sign up for the daily email?
It’s easy! In the navigation bar, you’ll see an orange button the words “Get Started” at the top of any page of this site. Scroll down the menu and click “Sign Up for Email.” Fill out the form, click “Submit” and you’ll start getting the daily email. If you’re having trouble with this, you can also email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know you want to receive the daily math problem in your inbox and we’ll sign you up manually.
I get the daily email. Now what?
Have some math fun with the little ones in your life! Read the set-up story and do any or all the levels of the math problem. The answers for each level are included below all the questions, to make things a little easier for everyone. Have fun discussing any topics that the Bedtime Math problem may bring up. If your kids are stuck, you can walk them through the steps to help them get the answer.
I was receiving the daily math problems and then they stopped all of a sudden. Why did this happen and how can I fix it?
We often find that people forward the email to a friend, and their friend accidentally unsubscribes them. If you’re suddenly not receiving the daily math problem, email us at email@example.com and we’ll work with our email marketing company to get the email sent to you.
What’s the difference between the daily email and the Bedtime Math app?
Our mobile app features the same set-up story and questions as the daily email. If you’re already dealing with too much email, you might prefer the app! Check it out by clicking on the orange button with the words “Get Started” in the navigation bar at the top of any page of this site. Scroll down the menu and click “Download the App.” Choose our Bedtime Math app for elementary school-age kids, or our MiniMath app designed for families with kids ages 4-5.
I love Bedtime Math, but I speak Spanish. Do you provide the daily math problems in English as well as Spanish?
What do the question labels like “Wee ones” and “Little kids” mean? What level of math are they?
We avoid using age or grade levels so that kids feel comfortable tackling as many or as few of the questions as they like. The questions start with Pre-K math such as counting and shapes and get more challenging from there!
My child has an idea for a Bedtime Math problem topic. Do you take suggestions?
We gladly take suggestions all the time! Anyone can become a Superfan by sending a specific topic or question to firstname.lastname@example.org with your kid’s first name and last initial. If we use the topic, we’ll be sure to give your kid a shout out!
We love the Bedtime Math books. Where can we buy the books?
I’m a teacher and want to do Bedtime Math in school or as homework – is that okay?
Bedtime Math’s mission is to help kids love numbers so they can handle the math in real life. Our daily math stories are meant for kids to do with their families together so it doesn’t feel like school work. Getting families to enjoy math as a fun activity at home is what Bedtime Math is all about. And best of all, it’s proven to boost kids’ math skills.
While we know teachers use Bedtime Math in the classroom as a warm up to jump-start math class, it is not a curriculum and should never be compulsory or assigned as homework. We do encourage teachers to help spread the word about Bedtime Math to their students’ families. Here’s a quick, informative flyer you can email or print out for parents: [in English] [en español].
What is the difference between Bedtime Math and Bedtime Math Foundation?
Bedtime Math Foundation is a nonprofit operating foundation, funded by charitable donations made by private donors. The foundation’s resources are used to advance the mission of helping kids learn to love numbers so they can handle the math in real life. Bedtime Math is just one of the many programs we offer as part of our charitable mission.
