Fun Wise® Math puts the “M” in STEM
School is out but math is always “IN”. Summer math review is critical to prevent summer slide and reinforce math facts learned during the school year. Studies show that most children lose about two months of math skills during the summer months.
Fun Exploring Math™
Extra math review during the summer is one way to prevent summer learning loss and retain math facts mastered during the school year. Fun Wise® Math summer camps explore math topics through fun active games, stories, and songs so it feels like summer more than school.

Focus and Fun
Bring math to life during the intense weeklong math camps. The creative games make it feel like summer while the daily facts come to life in three math topic areas:
Numbers & Counting
Recognizing numbers, ordering numbers and understanding number relationships are an important foundation for early number theory beyond basic counting. The camps brings numbers to life through many different hands-on games showing number lines, counting objects, early arithmetic and much more.
Patterns & Sets
Patterns are an important part of understanding mathematical relationships. Our campers enjoy many games in groups to develop sets and patterns based on fun characteristics like colors and shapes.
Points to polygons and all shapes in between are the focus of the geometry games. Each day at camp focuses on a different shape family plus reviewing shapes from the days before to grow math skills throughout the week. Movement is integrated into many games by making shapes with the body, warm up exercises, and finding shapes in the room. Exploring shapes is super FUN!
Advanced Math Vocabulary
Advanced Math Vocabulary is a fun and important part of the Fun Wise® Math curriculum. At all ages, math vocabulary is introduced so children learn the actual math words used in math classes. Quadrilateral, polygon, numeral and A B patterns are just a few examples of Big Math Words that kids learn during the camp week.
Interactive games incorporate multi-sensory learning for increased retention of math facts & physical activity. Scientific research shows that exercise improves retention of math facts so most games incorporate light physical activity. Kids exercise their minds and bodies in this fun active summer camp.
Growing Confidence as a master of math facts. Reviewing math skills learned during the year helps children retain the information and build confidence that they remember what they learned. Learning new facts builds self-esteem that campers are growing their knowledge over the summer and will be ahead when school begins.
Fosters Teamwork through fun active games. Campers are learning math using creative techniques and how to work in groups. Many fun games are done in teams even though everyone wins during Fun Wise® Math camp.
Aligns with National and State Standards
Aligns with National and State Standards to go above and beyond the required standards in each of the mathematical topic areas.
