Halloween Math

Celebrate Halloween with Fun Math Activities – All Treats, No Tricks

A Guest Post by John McGowan, Product Manager, Texthelp

At Texthelp, we love Halloween. After all, it gives you the opportunity to take things that are normally scary (spiders, ghosts, clowns) and turn them into something fun. Who doesn’t love a good costume party?!

For a lot of students, math can be very scary. If you’re not confident in math, solving a math problem can be just as intimidating as entering a haunted house.

For this Halloween, we want to help your students make math less scary, with 4 fun Halloween activities that you can do with EquatIO, our digital STEM tool.

Activity 1
