A good number of videos by Build Math Minds with instructions on how to teach your student various math topics.
Great content from the youcubed website:
Household supplies only:
- Snap-it (K-2): In this activity, students use snap cubes to make sense of parts and wholes and relate that to addition and subtraction of pairs. A small handful of anything you have on hand: pennies, paper clips, etc. will work just as well as snap cubes.
- Fewest squares (3-12): Students draw an 11×13 grid and try to find the fewest number of squares they can use to cover it without overlap or extending outside the grid. Our students have worked this question for hours at a time!
Indoor with technology / other supplies:
- Number visuals (K-12): In this activity students color-code collections of circles as they look for patterns. They can do this directly on a tablet, or you can print them out for the whole family, pull out some crayons, and use them as dinner mats. (K) : (1-2) : (3-5) : (6-12)
- Poly-Up (5-12): Poly-Up is an online platform that pushes students to develop computational thinking skills while helping Poly fix machines.
- Mathematical Art (K-12): We encourage students to expand this activity and discuss the maths you see in public art AND ANYWHERE! (Really anywhere! nature, architecture, street signs, etc.) Are there interesting shapes? Angles? Patterns? There is so much to see out there!
- Feet under the table (K-2): While sitting around the table, ask your student to figure out how many feet are under the table without looking. If your child is up for a challenge have them figure out how many toes are under the table.
- Emoji Graph (K-12): Students can survey their family on a topic of their choice and make a graph describing their findings. (K-2) : (3-5) : (6-8) : (9-12)
