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!
