Joyful Mathematics At Home!

Joyful Mathematics
At Home!

With many students staying home for the COVID-19 quarantine, the National Association of Math Circles in partnership with JRMF have created resources for students & families to engage with math from home!

These mathematically-minded activities can be played with materials found around the house and a little bit of printing or can be played entirely online through Google Drive or Microsoft Powerpoint!

    5 to 6 colors, with ~20 of each color

Problems for Grades: Second – Eighth

Strategies: Working backwards, wishful thinking, spatial awareness

Standards: I will fill this in soon!  I promise!
