“Crazy 8s” clubs bring energy and playfulness to math

by School's Out Washington | | Posted under STEM

Crazy 8scrazy8slogoR is a new nationwide after-school club designed to get kids fired up about math. Kids get to build stuff, run and jump, make music, make a mess… and make friendships at the same time.

Crazy 8s is like no other math club before it. Unlike the competitive, test-oriented clubs out there, Crazy 8s has an energy and playfulness that can appeal to any kid – not just those who already love math.  Activities like Toilet Paper Olympics and Bouncy Dice Explosion show kids that math is approachable, tangible and fun.

Bedtime Math provides a free kit containing full directions and most of the materials needed to run the 8 week club. Each kit is designed for 12-16 kids in grades K-2 and 3-5. The afterschool program finds a coach, Bedtime Math sends the kit – it’s that simple. So far the response has been overwhelming. With more than 6,000 clubs serving over 80,000 kids nationwide, it may already be America’s biggest math club for elementary school kids.

Crazy 8s is the latest offering from Bedtime Math Foundation, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to get kids to love math as much as playtime or dessert. Bedtime Math serves up fun, wacky math problems every day for parents and kids aged 3-9 – by email, on its website, and on its free app. More than 70,000 loyal fans have joined the movement.
