While I designed this website to have many resources parents can use, here are some fantastic free math resources specifically for parents.

Bedtime Math– Bedtime math can be just as much a fun part of your family’s nightly routine as a bedtime story! These stories and related problems are designed for parents to share with their children ages 3-9. You can sign up for a daily email, download the app or check the website each day. It is completely free!

ST Math Resources for Parents and Families. ST Math itself is on my recommended list of math websites for kids to use directly. However, they also offer a great parents’ resource page with links to articles from the Mind Research Institute.

The National Museum of Mathematics in New York offers online student sessions you can sign your children up for. Classes are offered for preK- 8th grade. The sessions are one time and last 45 minutes each.Many are free; others cost $5 for members and $15 for non members.


Outschool offers over 140,000 online classes for kids of all ages. Both one time and ongoing classes are available. The directory is free to search; the classes do have a cost but it is most cases very small.


Numberblocks is a BBC show currently available on Netflix. (Many of the 5 minute episodes also are on YouTube.) This show is a fantastic resource for teaching number sense in a very fun and creative way. Follow this link to my full post about the show, its website, and related manipulatives and activities.

Math in Daily Life

Finally, don’t underestimate the importance of all the every day things your family probably already does that contribute to your child’s mathematical learning!

I hope you find these free math resources for parents helpful! More free parent resources (including the ones in the picture) are described and linked in my Mastering Math Through Play PDF available for free download on the home page of this site!
