, but it's often left out of the curriculum. Excellent deduction skills are necessary for both higher level math and daily life, so help your students develop them with these fun games!
ONE of the four strategy games
is included in this sample of Math Strategy Games: Set 1
. Each one is a partner game, and none involve elements of chance or luck. These are pure strategy games, and if your students play enough, they just might develop a strategy that will allow them to win every single game! Each game is simple enough to teach to a kindergartener, yet challenging enough that mathematicians have devoted their careers to studying the game theory behind them.
