How to teach our kids math the fun way?

Hi everyone,

My name is Tyler and I have two adorable kids.
I came here because I really want to teach them math, but the problem is that I can't catch their attention and they're always bored when I try to teach them something.
Can you point me in the right direction? Are there any fun math games for kids?

Thanks in advance !!

How old?

http://mathpickle.com/ has some nice resources for school-aged children.

Everything at http://www.youtube.com/user/Vihart is amazing.

Very belated congratulations!

I wanted to reply to your original "My name is Tyler and I have two adorable kids." with "My name is Charles and I don't have two adorable kids" but that might provoke speculation about the number of non-adorable kids I might and might not have.

I've actually been emailing the author of those pages recently. He has a very interesting approach to math education and I like it.

I'll try to think of some. In the meantime, hopefully some others will post their own suggestions.

Hi CRGreathouse,

I really really like Vihart's channel (http://www.youtube.com/user/Vihart) there is a lot of useful information!!
Did you find something new that is similar to the above channel?
Or if any other user knows something like that that would be great

I'm looking forward to your replies !!

All the best,

the best way should be using different games... children love games, they don't love learning, but if they have to learn, it will be much easier and funnier if they learn playing...
