Math can be fun for kids, especially when they are engaged in activities that allow them to explore and discover mathematical concepts on their own. In Illinois, there are a variety of ways to make math enjoyable for children. For example, The Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago is an awesome place to take kids for educational fun. It offers interactive programs such as Math Fun-damentals which teaches basic adding, subtracting and multiplying skills through a variety of creative activities.
The DuPage Children's Museum also holds engaging math classes targeted at younger children aged 3- 6 years old. Through playful games like counting coins or using the museum exhibit scale, the classes provide hands-on learning experiences that engage children while introducing them to different elements of mathematics.
