The Bedtime Math app is a mobile app, currently being promoted by public schools in Newark, that is designed to make the seemingly impossible possible -- get kids to enjoy doing math problems at bedtime.

The app is designed to make math fun by removing scores and other stressful factors. The app features a cute search function that allows children to look up a subject that interests them, before being given math problems that pertain to that interest. There are questions about chocolate chip cookies, ninjas and weird animals.

The performance of school students in math and science has been a cause for concern in American schools in recent years. The Bedtime Math app aims to contribute towards reversing this app by making app pleasurable rather than torturous.
