Crazy 8s Afterschool Math Club Kits
Crazy 8s is a recreational after-school math club that helps youth appreciate the math that’s all around them. The program is offered by Bedtime Math Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping kids love numbers so they can handle the math in everyday life.
Crazy 8s is a math club unlike any before it. It’s a collection of novel, high-octane math activities that will appeal to a wide range of kids, not just the future math-contest types. The club is designed for after-school programs, libraries, or anywhere kids come together to learn and have fun. While most math clubs are competitive clubs focused on worksheets and tests for middle or high school students, Crazy 8s is for young kids to socially and collaboratively focus on creative, hands-on math activities.
Crazy 8s is designed to appeal to any kid – not just kids who already love math – with fun activities like Glow-in-the-Dark Geometry and Toilet Paper Olympics.
It’s easy for any program to host a Crazy 8s Club! Here are the components:
