Making math a game

Kids spin the wheel to find out which numbers they need to multiply.

Kids spin the wheel to find out which numbers they need to multiply.

Kids used dice, dominoes and a prize wheel to practice their addition and multiplication tables during our STEAM program last month.

The children used different games of chance to receive random numbers. They then needed to find the product—of, for younger kids, the sum—of those numbers to complete different games.

It was, as they say in Adventure Time, mathematical.


Our STEAM series returns next month with a program focused on science on Tuesday, March 27, at our Main Branch.

(If you don’t know, STEAM is an acronym that stands for Science Technology Engineering Art Math.)

The program is free and open to all kids in first through fifth grade. However, registration is required. You can sign up online or call us at (440) 255-8811 ext. 219.

By the way, young scientists can also check out the Picking Up STEAM Club at our Lake Branch.

Kids from kindergarten through fifth grade can learn about science, math and more with interactive experiments.

The next club meeting is at 2 p.m. on Saturday, March 10. We’ll be making slime, so wear something you don’t mind getting messy.
