Math is Everywhere! Bedtime Math #STEMchat

Math is everywhere! Every day we use math–to estimate distances, tell time, divide up treats, listen to music, take care of finances, and to make the most of our day.

So, I am thrilled to be part of the Bedtime Math Parent Blogging team supporting an excellent new project to promote mathematical literacy for kids: Bedtime Math. Just like we make special time for reading to our children at the end of each day, Bedtime Math provides parents with the tools to include a daily math problem in these bonding moments.

Come chat with Bedtime Math and several other panelists (including me) about how you can make math a fun part of your family’s daily life. Join us on Twitter on Tuesday, June 25 from 9 – 10 PM Eastern using the hashtags #STEMchat and #BTMath.

The bedtime math problem is also available through email subscription via their website and their popular Bedtime Math Facebook page. On June 25th, Bedtime Math founder Laura Overdeck is releasing her book: Bedtime Math: A Fun Excuse to Stay up Late.

You can celebrate the book launch at home or connect your local library to get a free math party kit. And of course, join in the fun at #STEMchat on Twitter.

Join in on June 25 to share how you make math fun for your little ones and learn about new parent-tested math activities and resources.
