Introducing Free Weekly Math Puzzles for Kids

NMF Weekly Puzzle Newsletter

Celebrate our community through mathematical thinking, play, and joy with a free math puzzle newsletter by Dr. James Tanton of the Global Math Project! 

Each week during the school year, your math friend, James, accepts questions from kids that he can explore in upcoming puzzles for K-12 students to ponder.

Issue #1: MATH AND CATS

New Facebook Group: Find Family Math Inspiration at Home!

Many of us are stepping into a more active role supporting children with math learning this year. We're here to encourage, inspire, and challenge families to see math in new and exciting ways.

Math Moms & Math Dads is a place for parents and guardians of PreK-12 students to share ideas with one another… give and get encouragement... trade stories...and ask questions of the recreational math experts and Festival presenters who will (sparingly but enthusiastically!) participate in the group. Our Festival staff also share our favorite joyful math resources daily. Educators are also welcome to join the community.
