In honor of National Engineers Week (this week), thought I'd pass along some articles, resources, and sites that focus on making math and science fun for your kids. 

 

 

Articles:

Loved this article that talks about teachers using every-day situations to teach math concepts.How to make math concepts stick.

Great to read how engineering companies like Raytheon are celebrating National Engineers Week by promoting innovative ways to teach math and science with a series of interactive and hands-on events for middle school students across the country.

Always smile when I read articles about students "learning mathematics in a way their parents did not."  Amen to that!

Resources: & Sites

You'll definitely want to bookmark this  fabulous book list for kids and teens courtesy of S.T.E.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math)

Check out this fun math website that a teacher created for his students. How many times have we heard that people master a subject matter by teaching it to someone else. Love that the premise of this site is kids teaching kids.

OK, I know that I have mentioned this site in a past blog, but I think that the Braincake site bears repeating. Any site that encourages girls to love math and science gets a thumbs up in my book.  

Recently found a new favorite site that lists 100 Tools to Make Your Kids Math and Science Stars. You can only imagine how exhaustive this list is. This list gives math activities a whole new meaning. Whether you have a child gifted in math or one struggling to grasp math concepts, there is something here for you.

Lastly, here are a few of my favorite math and science resources and activities from our site:

    Your information on making our kids math and science stars is truly terrific. I agree with you, and how we need to make our kids the best they can be when it comes to these subjects. Especially, math because almost every job out there will involve some type of numbers so making them excel in math will truly help them.
