Overview

Math Adventures: A Math Engagement Program is based on the Iowa Core Standards for Mathematics. The goal of the program is to help students in Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd grades improve their math skills. Studies have shown that early math skills are consistently associated with higher academic performance in later grades. To do this, participants will use content from PBS KIDS LAB, pbskids.org/lab and PBS Learning Media, iptv.pbslearningmedia.org, as well as hands-on math activities to practice math skills. The Framework can be expanded to include additional activities as needed. Children in grades K-2 are paired with older students or adults, who help guide them through each of the sessions for their grade level.
