What & Why: Summer of Numbers is an incentive-based summer math program designed to combat the well-documented loss of critical math skills during the summer months when school is not in session. It has been generously funded by a grant from the Lyme-Old Lyme Education Foundation.
Where: The Old Lyme-Phoebe Griffin Noyes Library’s William & Constance Pike Children’s Room
When: When the registration day for 2017 is chosen, we will list it here.
How: After you’ve picked up your program materials, determine how you would like to receive your daily math problems (download the Bedtime Math app, visit their website and click “Today’s Fun Math”, register your email address on the Bedtime Math website, or pick up paper copies at the Library). When you receive your daily problem, choose the level that best matches your ability and age level and answer the corresponding question. When you’ve arrived at the correct answer, put a sticker on your chart! Stumped? Stop by the Library and we’ll try to help.
Prizes: When you register you automatically win a glow in the dark frisbee! When you complete your sticker chart, stop by the library and get a gift card for a free slice of pizza and a soda from Pizzeria Da Vinci of Old Lyme.
