|Summary:||Age Range: 4-10 (Grades K-4 approximately, with parental participation and supervision). What an ingenious idea! This website, sponsored by the Overdeck Family Foundation, provides a free, daily, Bedtime Math Problem that helps parents give kids a fun opportunity "to do math in their heads, so someday when they’re shopping and everything’s 20% off, they can figure out the sale price before the store closes."
|Description:||As explained at the website, the Bedtime Math Problem aims to be “fun and lively, but they won’t keep your kids from falling asleep. In our experience, math can get kids to sit still, focus, and quiet down.”

When you get to the website, you’ll see the most recent Bedtime Math Problem posted on the home page. When we visited, there were fun math problems themed around:
You’ll also find a free, printable BMP calendar to track how many days you do Bedtime Math, and a Teacher/Parent Guide.
The site offers a couple of items for sale, too – but you don’t have to purchase a thing to access the Bedtime Math Problem each day.
