Summer is a favorite season for children as they break from daily routine. However, they may lose a large amount of what they learned during the school year. Experts call it “summer brain drain” and is more prevalent in math than in other subjects. More math activities for fun and discovery will help in retaining and sharpening kids’ skills over the summer. One great activity is solving number sequences with NxtApp 4 Kids, the popular and fun iPhone app.
