Dear Reader,

As this newsletter is being delivered around the world, I am
on the last leg of a five-day road trip, looking at college
campuses with my son and his friend. I had imagined that this
would be a family trip with my husband, daughter AND another
family. But when the rubber hit the highway, it was just me
and two fifteen-year old young men!

After my daughter’s success on eBay (research for my upcoming
book on eBay for kids and families) my son is auctioning his
collection of Magic the Gathering cards

Hag Sameach to my Jewish readers.

Today’s newsletter is brought to you by the following sponsor.

  • Thousands of Seniors (Who Never Thought They Could) Now Live Safely At Home

Fun with Math


Arithmetic 24 Game
Coloring Book Math
Math Marvel Crossword

(Teach your kids how to make games just
like these with my step-by-step manual. )

The world seems to be divided into two kinds of people. Those who think math is fun, and those who don’t. Today’s sites are designed to entertain the first group, and convert the second.




Coolmath Karen (a college calculus teacher who doesn’t reveal her last name) has created a network of sites for kids, parents, and teachers, dedicated to the proposition that math is fun.
Enter the Kids! portal for math games, fun lessons and educational calculators for elementary and middle-school students. My favorite clicks are the interactive exhibits in Cool Things (don’t miss The Splash) and the useful calculators (such as wind chill factor, dog years, savings and sales tax) in Calculate Stuff.

Figure This!



“When you back up from a small wall mirror, do you see more of yourself?” Figure This! is chock full of eighty printable math challenges and answer sheets for middle schoolers. You can use the challenges online by scanning the Challenge Index or Math Index for intriguing topics, or download them in batches in PDF format for printing and offline use. Parents and teachers will find tips on using the challenges in Family Corner and Teacher Corner, respectively.

FunBrain Numbers



Seventeen original games based on baseball, soccer, car racing and other fun things will intrigue even the most stubborn elementary-age math students. My favorites included Cookie Dough (learn to spell numbers up to 10,000 and don’t forget that compound numbers from twenty-one to ninety-nine use a dash), Change Maker (in four different currencies) and Tic-Tac-Toe Squares (not your usual Tic-Tac-Toe.) Some of the game pages were a little slow to load, but the quality of the games overshadowed this one drawback.
