NPR has the story Where The Wild Fractions Are: The Power Of A Bedtime (Math) Story.
We compared kids who used the Bedtime Math app that involved reading stories and doing math problems with their parents to kids who did a very similar app that didn’t have the math content. We showed that when kids frequently used the app with their parents, those who used the math app were three months ahead in terms of math achievement relative to kids who just did the reading app.
This sounds like it may be a great idea for kids and parents who are struggling with math in school.
