My son is in Class or Grade 5 in India. he really likes mathematics. Apart from school work, he does ixl.com, website dedicated for math exercises of his class. he does those exercises relatively easily. i want to encourage him in mathematics,

  1. how should i encourage my son, so that he is engaged and curiosity remains ?

  2. can anyone suggest math books for him to continue to learn problem solving ?

Beast Academy is wonderful. It goes from a level 2 to a level 5, but those are higher than U.S. grade levels. Also, I have some of my favorite books listed at my blog.

The Kahn Academy is quite extensive, and in my experience of high quality. It is partitioned by grades (kindergarten, 1st, .2nd, .., 8th), and by topic (arithmetic, geometry, pre-algebra, etc.) It has a nice interactive interface, practice questions and levels. A student can have a personalized dashboard. They've now branched out to Economics and AP-Biology among other topics. A non-profit organization.
