Fun Math for Kids 

Fun Math for Kids We're talking deep fun here. Not that we don't love those cute little math games that drill kids on their basic facts  addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. If we're going to drill, it might as well be fun. But there's more to math than learning times tables, and the more kids are exposed to the good stuff, the more they'll see math as useful, interesting, and even beautiful. The activities, web sites, and books on this page give kids a chance to solve interesting realworld problems, work with patterns and functions, use geometry to make pleasing artworks, and develop a feel for numbers that makes all math easier and more rewarding.
