Math Games Played with Cards and Dice (K-3) is the first volume in the Galaxy Series from IPMG Publishing. It contains fun and motivating games and puzzles to develop skills and interest in studying mathematics.
The Galaxy Series provides supplementary mathematics materials that support traditional or reform curricula. All activities in the series reflect content recommendations of the Mathematics Focal Points of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM). They promote skill development that is required for mathematics literacy and beyond. All lessons are self-contained and the activities include all score sheets and instructions. Answers and discussion are provided where appropriate.
This book, which is aimed at Grades K-3, provides activities and skill building exercises both to promote computational skill and to promote logical reasoning and mathematical thinking. The grade levels for the various Galaxy Series books are suggestions only. If a higher level book has activities that fit a particular topic, the teacher or parent is invited to use them as desired. The mathematics topic(s) on which each lesson is based is listed in the Contents of each book.
These books are flexible. They may be used as supplementary for students who need additional help and they provide excellent group activities for cooperative learning of mathematics. An element of competition is fostered by some of the game formats that utilize playing cards and dice as instructional devices.
Most materials needed to use the Galaxy Series and this book in particular are contained in the materials presented. All record and score sheets are readily copied on any standard copy machine, and teachers are allowed to duplicate all such documents freely. Calculators may be used in some of the games and puzzles at the teacher’s or parent’s discretion. Standard playing cards and dice as well as other useful manipulative devices are available through the publisher at www.iplaymathgames.com
The authors and publisher hope that this book will help promote and extend mathematics learning for all students. For additional IPMG Publishing materials, please visit us at www.iplaymathgames.com.
