Mixing in Math is our interdisciplinary approach to math for children and those who spend time with them. We create materials for families, caregivers, after-school providers, librarians, and teachers to mix math into everything they do with children—from reading books to playing games to building towers to catching up on chores. Click below for information on our three strands of work.
Using Mixing in Math has been a valuable an enriching experience for all of us—librarians, kids, and parents—as it has heightened our awareness of the many ways we are using basic math skills in our everyday lives. It’s a terrific way for children’s librarians to offer programs that foster both literacy and math skills!
