Using games in math

posted Mar 19, 2017, 1:27 PM by Rebecca Tapley
Practicing math skills can be so much fun with games! One game we've played only involves a deck of cards. We call it "Product War" and it is pretty simple. Use the basic concept of war, but instead of putting down one card at a time, put down two. Say the multiplication fact aloud, and whoever has the higher product wins that hand.
Another game students love is an app called Slice It! Students may not realize that they are learning geometry, fractions, and percentages, all at once.
We also continue to connect Art and Math in SMArt time. We began making 3D diamonds, and identified all of the 2D shapes that were involved.
