A Mathnasium Math Night helps kids explore math at their own level through exciting games and activities! These events are designed to engage both students and their guardians, and can take place in partnership with any local school, community group, or business. We bring all the games, materials, and fun -- all you have to do is prepare the space, provide the volunteers, and promote the event!

What are Math Nights?

  • A math event hosted jointly by Mathnasium and a partner for K-5th grade students
  • An opportunity to involve families in a fun, enjoyable shared math experience
  • Easy programming -- Mathnasium provides all games and materials for turn-key execution
  • Encouragement and empowerment for kids of all backgrounds to pursue a love of math and STEM education
  • Math exploration for kids at their own levels through games and activities

How Does a Math Night Work?

Each child attending the Math Night will receive a "passport" with 10 numbered stars, once for each of the 10 activity stations. Families will visit each station and play the game or complete the activity at the station together. Once they've finished each activity, the volunteer facilitating the activity will mark off the correspondning star on the passport. Attendees do not need to complete the stations in order, and are welcome to revisit their favorite stations! Once all 10 stars are marked on the passport, families will visit the Rewards table to trade their passport in for a goody bag and a chance to enter a giveaway drawing.


Mathnasium Provides:

  • General framework for the event
  • 8 K-2 grade level game stations with all supplies
  • 8 3-5 grade level game stations with all supplies
  • 2 all-grade level game stations with all supplies
  • A Math Night passport for each student in attendance
  • A Goody Bag for each student in attendance
  • At least 1 Raffle item for guardians
  • Resources to assist with registration, promotion of the event, etc. as needed

You Provide:

  • Tables for the games, registration, and rewards
  • Volunteers to engage with participants as they play the games at each table
  • Promotion for the Math Night

What Schools Are Saying About Mathnasium Math Nights

“I absolutely love how easy and fun it is to host a school-wide math night with Mathnasium! All the games and supplies are provided for you and it’s a great way to get the school community together while having fun with math!”
-Karen Shrader, 4th Grade Teacher, Nuckols Farm Elementary School

"Dear Jessica, Thanks so much for all of your help in making Math Night at Dumbarton a hit. So many students have said that they had so much fun. We had 215 people in attendance. You helped to make it such an easy, fun night for all of us. I thought the games and activities were engaging and educational. A truly nice mix of grade level content was included. I truly appreciate all that you’ve done."
-Carol Crabtree, Math Instructional Coach, Dumbarton Elementary School

"I was thinking about the events that we had at Glen Lea in 2022. One of our most popular events was Math and Literacy Night. You and the team of Mathnasium are a great hit. The families enjoy the activities that you bring. Each event as you know is scheduled, but we always must usher our families out because they love playing the math games. (LOL!!) They enjoy it so much, that many are trying to find your activities on different websites so they can have them in their home. The other fact is how easy and convenient it is to set up with you all. A phone call or email is all it takes. I look forward to having you all at Glen Lea again."
-Hattie Crawley, Family Advocate, Glen Lea Elementary School
