Math in the Playground with Urban Math Trails

1Take your students out of the classroom and into the playground for a math lesson. Not only has TPL transformed over 200 barren asphalt lots into dynamic green playgrounds for NYC students, we are now activating math learning at these playgrounds. A series of playground problem sets, tied to NYC math learning standards, is now available for K-5. Discover the possibilities to engage your students in math in your own playground.
