This is an engaging game for upper elementary and junior high students who are learning or need practice with the key ideas behind BEDMAS.
Bedmas is an acronym that helps students remember how to perform the order of operations and "Three Amigos" is the perfect game to intrigue and motivate students to practice this concept.
Ultimately, it is most important for students to UNDERSTAND the math behind this acronym and when students are paired up to play this fun domino game, they can further develop their ability to confidently choose which procedures ( +,-,x or dividing) should be done first.
The more students play the math game THREE AMIGOS, the easier it gets for them to realize that following the correct order in a given mathematical expression is key to arriving at the correct answer.
In Three Amigos, students can choose from a vast variety of gameboards and many are offered in black-line masters, so that these can be included in a math journal or for "take home"/home work practice.
Players flip dominoes and must then use good logical reasoning skills when placing their dominoes onto their game board.
Strategic thinking and problem solving is key to winning the game and students love the challenge.
This is definitely a teacher/student favorite in many upper elementary and middle grade classrooms.
