Product Description

Math Football is a rich board game for practicing math skills. Students of all different math achievement levels can play with each other and still be challenged at their "just right" level.

Perfect as a math center, Math Football will provide your class with hours and hours of fun. For your students, the rigorous math work will just be icing on the cake!

How does it work?


Students pick from one of the many "play books" based on the skills that they want to practice. They then make strategic decisions that drive the game forward. To make bigger plays, you must answer tougher problems.

Students of completely different ability levels can play with each other (on teams, or against each other). This leads to students helping each other students with complex math problems, gaining confidence, and having fun doing math.

Right now, there are playbooks for the 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade level, and include these topics:

-Addition & Subtraction

-Mental Math (Addition & Subtraction)



-Decimals well as any other topic you cover (a blank playbook template is included, so you can easily fill in your own problems)

Included in the download


-A printable 11x17 game board which includes the field and a scoreboard to keep track of score, downs, and yard till first down.

-7 printable "play books" with different topics and ability levels. Four star play books = 4th grade level, five star books = 5th grade level. (Printed on 8.5 x 11 paper and cut into two parts).

-A playbook template (for Word), so that you can create your own custom problem sets that match the format of the included playbooks.

-A "rules" leaflet explaining the rules of the game in detail. Of course, you and/or your students might choose to adapt these to what works for you! (Printed on 8.5x11)

-A set of playing cards which can be printed on 8.5 x 11 (preferably cardstock).

-All files are included in easy-to-print PDF format, as well as editable Word format--so you can change anything you need to fit your class.
