Play Math! Coming to a Location Near You

Play Math! Coming to a Location Near You

Play is an important part of learning and can connect schools and communities. When students have the chance to play math, it opens the door to endless possibilities and helps them uncover mathematical connections that exist around us.

The San Diego County Office of Education has designed Play Math!, an opportunity for young people and adults to explore the fun in mathematics through pop-up booths at community events.

"Math is playful, fueled by curiosity, and for everyone," says Audrey Mendivil, director, curriculum and instruction at SDCOE. "It doesn’t need to be dreaded memorization or confusing worksheets."

Through math play, educators can highlight the ways our students naturally exude brilliance and then build from those ideas, experiences, and curiosities in the classroom to honor and connect our students, communities, and schools. Play Math! spaces are designed to show how students play with math outside of school, and then that can be used to build into the classroom experience. 

SDCOE teams will be showcasing Play Math! at several community events this month and everyone is invited to stop by and explore.

San Diego County educators can access pop-up booth materials for their own Play Math! experience for free through SDCOE's lending program and download free printables at any time on the math website
