math card games
Are you after some more fun math games that you can use with your students? Maybe you’re teaching your kids about problem solving or you would like to develop their number work. I find math card games are a fantastic way for kids to practice and consolidate math skills, but in a non-threatening and highly motivational way. If you’re looking for some easy card games to provide consolidation of a concept you have already taught, I’m sharing my top 6 fun math games using cards.
This is a very fun and engaging adaptation to the traditional dice game of Farkle! This game reinforces the concept of subtraction with regrouping (and without). You will need 6 regular dice to play this multi-player game. Students roll all dice, decide which point-earning dice to keep aside and keep rolling.
Get your student to use their creativity with lines and polygons! Students are given directions, as well as a rubric, to design a map of a city using their knowledge of lines and polygons. There will definitely be some higher level thinking with this activity. Students are also expected to name business/buildings.
