MINNEAPOLIS -  Hilton Minneapolis is partnering with IPMG Publishing, LLC to distribute a book of math games to families upon check-in to the hotel. The book is designed to reinforce developing math concepts to students ranging from Kindergarten age through the 8th grade in an engaging and entertaining way and will be distributed to families who stay at the Hilton Minneapolis through the summer.

"We are delighted to be a part of Math Made Fun," said John Luke, General Manager. "Hilton Minneapolis recognized an opportunity to add value to families' visits by providing them with an educational and fun activity that reflects the family values of our organization. We are excited to support IPMG Publishing in helping to make learning math interactive and fun for children."

To date, Hilton Minneapolis has distributed approximately 700 math game books to guests. And the feedback that we have received from the Hilton Minneapolis guests who have received the publication has been very positive. The book consists of 26 pages of games and meet correlates to the standards set by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics. The games were developed by math teachers and have been tested in classrooms for over 20 years.

"Because Hilton is a household name and Hilton Minneapolis hosts thousands of guests each week from across the country, distributing the math books at the hotel will allow our program to reach a larger and more diverse array of children," said Joel Gaslin, President of IPMG Publishing. "Our hope is, that with this exciting partnership, lots of kids will find that the book is a fun way to learn practical math applications and encourage a positive relationship with math"
