The easy-to-use math games in this collection are intended to reinforce basic facts and build student con dence with math skills.
The games are a mixture of individual and partner games but also work well for review in small groups or for class review if the materials are available in the quantities needed. Many have simpli ed rules since their initial introduction. As a bonus, the set includes a special class skill-builder or a class game as a thank you for your purchase.
Games range from easy to more complex and have suggested options. They include addition and subtraction with some multiplication and simple division as well. Most can be played in 10-20 minutes and require little supervision once the rules are understood. Some games include a written component that may be collected by the teacher to check student basic facts understanding.
A guide is provided for every game indicating the dif culty, number of players, math operations to be used, and the approximate time needed to complete the game.
Supplies needed for games include decks of playing cards, dice, paper and pencils, game boards, clear markers, basic facts cards, and, occasionally, a timing device and wipe off marking pens.
