I don't think so. You could hire a tutor but that could get a little expensive. Or you can make math fun for your kids with MathChimp. This free and colorful math app for kids gathers together cool math games and organizes them into degrees of difficulty.

Thirdly, there's a developing understanding of linear measurement and measuring lengths as iterating length units. The final area deals with the reasoning about the attributes and composing and decomposing geometric shapes. In Grade 2 instructional time should focus on another four critical areas. Extending understanding of base-ten notation, building fluency with addition and subtraction, using standard units of measure and describing and analyzing shapes. It sounds complicated but it isn't really but, as you can see, MathChimp is a very well researched math learning app for children.
