Kids have never liked summer school—until now!
Instead of an ordinary number line, kids fly planes down a glowstick runway. Instead of struggling with numerators and denominators, kids cut hand-drawn faces into squares to connect fractions with decimals. Instead of dull grids, kids line up grassy squares of cows to explore area and perimeter.
Kids will learn only if they want to. It’s time to move beyond screen time and worksheets.
Fun Factor will reignite your students’ love of math to accelerate their learning.
Here's how it works:
- Explore our activities by grade-level standard for K-5 here.
- Register for our special 6-week series of professional development for summer school. Sessions will take place Wednesdays starting April 14 and Saturdays starting April 17. Each week’s session builds on the key skills from the previous week.
- Once you complete the series, request teacher guides, editable slides, and classroom materials for each activity, all free of charge.
- In return for this free offering, we require teachers to send feedback on student progress.
Any public or accredited private elementary school teacher who will provide direct instruction to students in the U.S. this summer can participate.
Make it hands-on.
Each dynamic activity knits together multiple skills and standards in a single lesson, covering what used to take days of class time. By providing multiple entry points, we give every student the thrill of victory.
“Reminding us of the effectiveness of ‘play’ in instruction was invaluable!”

Make it engaging.
After a lonely year, now kids can bond over dynamic, social math activities and interact with math on a whole new level.
“Our new superintendent came over and watched with the first graders. He was down on the floor engaged with them and amazed at the strategies, reasoning and math language they were using.”

Make it memorable.
Let’s face it – summer school is competing against sunny weather, social media and video games. Why not give kids math that makes a lasting impression?
“I thought of math as the worst subject, but after Fun Factor, it wasn’t that way. It made me change the way I see math.”
