    This collection of math games makes it easy for your students to supplement & enrich your fourth grade math units. your students can dig deeper into the concepts they have learned during the lessons and practice exercises provided by your curriculum through hands-on math modeling, movement, verbal communication, and problem solving. 

    Each game is research-based, student-centered, aligned to fourth grade math standards to give your students a variety of opportunities to access engaging and challenging learning experiences. 



    Differentiation and rigor were top priority when these games were created. Rather than assigning different games for each unique group of learners in your classroom, everyone has access to every game when using Math In Motion games.

    Each game card provides detailed step-by-step instructions that teach students how to play and includes suggestions for playing a more challenging version of the same game. This allows your students to easily increase the rigor and get more in-depth practice with each standard once they’ve demonstrated mastery.



    These game cards are designed to promote student independence and self-directed learning. The format of each game card includes a consistent easy-to-read layout that gives students every detail they need to play successfully. Each game card includes: 

    ★ Number of players

    ★ Objective (a standards-based goal for each game, along with ideas for making the game more challenging) 

    ★ Materials list (everything your students need to gather before playing)

    ★ Set-up instructions (how to arrange the playing space and how to determine who gets the first turn) 

    How to play (student-friendly instructions for playing and winning)



    Now your students can easily give your students more hands-on practice without having to prep or curate your own games for each unit. Here are a few ways your students can use these math games as an instructional tool in your classroom:

    ★ Hands-on rotation during math workshop, guided math, math centers, or Daily 3

    ★ Guided game play during small group meetings

    ★ Focus of Math Game Monday – a 20-minute block of time each week when your students introduce a new math game to the class

    ★ Guided math game play and conversations with parent volunteers, teacher’s aides, or teacher

    ★ Formative assessment tool throughout math units

    ★ Easy resource to send home for extra math practice with family and friends.



    Each game is designed to make your life as a teacher easy and make math highly-engaging for your students.

    ★ Every game is designed to boost engagement and make math fun through friendly competition. 

    ★ Each game uses simple manipulatives or quick print-and-laminate game cards that can be reused year after year. The specific manipulatives needed for each game are listed in the preview.

    ★ Many games include movement and are perfect for your active learners. 

    ★ Both full-color and black-line masters are provided for your printing preferences. 



    These games can also be used for practice at home. The game instruction cards are provided in a separate PDF file that can easily be uploaded as an assignment on Google Classroom.

    These games use tools your students may already have at home, but you can also provide your students with a ”Math Game Kit” that contains the following manipulatives:

    ★ One deck of cards

    ★ Timer/stopwatch



    ★ Dice

    ★ Dominos

    ★ File folder

    ★ Included game cards

    Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning. Mathematically proficient students notice if calculations are repeated, and look both for general methods and for shortcuts. Upper elementary students might notice when dividing 25 by 11 that they are repeating the same calculations over and over again, and conclude they have a repeating decimal. By paying attention to the calculation of slope as they repeatedly check whether points are on the line through (1, 2) with slope 3, middle school students might abstract the equation (𝑦 – 2)/(𝑥 – 1) = 3. Noticing the regularity in the way terms cancel when expanding (𝑥 – 1)(𝑥 + 1), (𝑥 – 1)(𝑥² + 𝑥 + 1), and (𝑥 – 1)(𝑥³ + 𝑥² + 𝑥 + 1) might lead them to the general formula for the sum of a geometric series. As they work to solve a problem, mathematically proficient students maintain oversight of the process, while attending to the details. They continually evaluate the reasonableness of their intermediate results.
    Look for and make use of structure. Mathematically proficient students look closely to discern a pattern or structure. Young students, for example, might notice that three and seven more is the same amount as seven and three more, or they may sort a collection of shapes according to how many sides the shapes have. Later, students will see 7 × 8 equals the well remembered 7 × 5 + 7 × 3, in preparation for learning about the distributive property. In the expression 𝑥² + 9𝑥 + 14, older students can see the 14 as 2 × 7 and the 9 as 2 + 7. They recognize the significance of an existing line in a geometric figure and can use the strategy of drawing an auxiliary line for solving problems. They also can step back for an overview and shift perspective. They can see complicated things, such as some algebraic expressions, as single objects or as being composed of several objects. For example, they can see 5 – 3(𝑥 – 𝑦)² as 5 minus a positive number times a square and use that to realize that its value cannot be more than 5 for any real numbers 𝑥 and 𝑦.
    Attend to precision. Mathematically proficient students try to communicate precisely to others. They try to use clear definitions in discussion with others and in their own reasoning. They state the meaning of the symbols they choose, including using the equal sign consistently and appropriately. They are careful about specifying units of measure, and labeling axes to clarify the correspondence with quantities in a problem. They calculate accurately and efficiently, express numerical answers with a degree of precision appropriate for the problem context. In the elementary grades, students give carefully formulated explanations to each other. By the time they reach high school they have learned to examine claims and make explicit use of definitions.
    Reason abstractly and quantitatively. Mathematically proficient students make sense of quantities and their relationships in problem situations. They bring two complementary abilities to bear on problems involving quantitative relationships: the ability to decontextualize-to abstract a given situation and represent it symbolically and manipulate the representing symbols as if they have a life of their own, without necessarily attending to their referents-and the ability to contextualize, to pause as needed during the manipulation process in order to probe into the referents for the symbols involved. Quantitative reasoning entails habits of creating a coherent representation of the problem at hand; considering the units involved; attending to the meaning of quantities, not just how to compute them; and knowing and flexibly using different properties of operations and objects.
    Compare two decimals to hundredths by reasoning about their size. Recognize that comparisons are valid only when the two decimals refer to the same whole. Record the results of comparisons with the symbols >, =, or <, and justify the conclusions, e.g., by using a visual model.
