The objective of the Math Storytime mobile app and web site is to help parents explore simple math concepts with their children (age 5-7) through stories accessible on their tablets or via the web (www.mathstorytime.ca). We hope that this new resource will engender ongoing conversation about math and connections to math in the child's world and become a great resource for parents who want to engage their children in math, learning and fun at home.
One of the important features of the app and website will be the option to engage the inspiring, accessible and fun 'discussion bubble' function within each story.
It is important to "talk math" with your child every day. These discussion bubbles provide suggestions for you and your child to do and talk about math together and will help you to focus on the content in this story.
The objective of the members of the Council of Ontario Directors of Education (CODE) is to improve student success at every age level. Development of effective resources is a primary task to assist with student success.
CODE recognizes the importance of mathematics and knows from experience the value of parents engaging with their children and emphasizing the importance of math in everyday activities.
