    Looking for some resources for fun math problems. DS9 is already in school so this would be more for enrichment. There are only a few I know myself - I don't want to accelerate with this just add some depth and fun.

    DS's favorite math has always been the Kangaroo questions; they're very visual-spatial and tend to require thinking sideways about a problem. They only require grade-level knowledge, but are quite different than anything he'd ever found at school. You can find old contest papers here:

    Of course, if you wants LOTS of math, AoPS is the place to go - but there's likely to be a lot of learning involved, at any level you take smile Not as easy to dip in and out of, but awesome math taught by people who find joy in it.

    My son loves Art if Problem Solving.
    When he was younger (kindergarten), he enjoyed Bedtime Math. You can sign up for a daily problem via email. Sadly, the problems arenít very challenging beyond the early level but they are always accompanied by a fun story/facts.
