Happy Valentine's Month! This February we want to share our love of math with all of you. At Mathnasium, math help for kids is fun, and our students look forward to coming into our learning centers for tutoring in math. This is because we focus on teaching math in a way that makes sense to each of our students, giving them the skills they need to reach their math goals, and giving them renewed confidence in themselves.

We also know math doesn't only happen in a classroom or a math learning program. When parents encourage kids to do math at home on a regular basis, the same way they encourage children to read on a daily basis, those kids are more likely to report that they enjoy math, and feel more comfortable when new math concepts are brought up by their math teachers.

Below are some fun, Valentine-themed math activities to print out at home and do with your student, ranging from lower elementary to post-algebra and everything in between. Just click on the link to open the .pdf document.

We hope these will inspire your student to LOVE math as much as we do!

Before I came to Mathnasium, I could sum up everything I felt about math in one word: 'EVIL!' I hated math. ... Mathnasium has been my safe haven. They truly have shown me the light when it came to addressing my fear and provided me with the tools that I need to rebuild my prior knowledge so that I won't forget it. Math is no longer a subject I shy away from but it is a subject I can boldly accept and understand.
