Cris Johnson Makes Math F.U.N.!
Cris Johnson promises that your students will get more excited about math than ever before as they learn math puzzles, games, and even math-e-magic tricks that they can do at home. They won’t learn about adding, subtracting, or dividing (they get enough of that in class) but Cris guarantees that your students will understand that math is all around them and is a big part of what they do and see every day.
The core concepts of the Goofy Kooky Math Show are:
Fun: There are so many FUN things to do with math! Understand: Math helps us UNDERSTAND the world around us! Necessary: Math is NECESSARY in so many areas of life!
Some of the concepts in the Goofy Kooky Math Show school assembly:
- mental math
- probability & possibility
- numerators & denominators
- magic squares
- topological puzzles
- basic geometry (angles, shapes & patterns)
- understanding odd and even numbers
- mathematical logic and reasoning
- Games of chance vs games of skill
- Math in everyday life (sports, food, medicine, etc)

The important thing to remember is that this assembly is NOT a dry, boring lecture…and it’s not “just for fun” either. This assembly introduces students to fascinating math concepts, reinforces terms your students hear in class, and demonstrates just how important and fun math is! Your students will participate in fun, goofy math activities, puzzles, and magic tricks with fun, silly activities!
