COEUR d'ALENE — The Idaho Regional Mathematics Center at University of Idaho Coeur d’Alene has a new resource available to parents and teachers to keep students engaged with math lessons during this extended time outside the classroom.

The free book, “Mathematics at Home: Activity Book,” contains 13 games for elementary-aged students along with links to videos and photos to support hands-on learning.

The activity book includes riddles, scavenger hunts and games that require household items such as cards or dice, as well as items found in nature such as rocks. The math center also built 350 kits for distribution across seven school districts. Each kit contains a hard copy of the activity book, graph paper and math manipulatives.

The local Idaho Regional Mathematics Center supports educators and students across Idaho’s five northern counties.

The book is at: bit.ly/IRMC-MathAtHome

Additional games and content can be found on the math center’s social media channels at facebook.com/IRMCcda and twitter.com/idmathed.
