Looking for Fun and Engaging Math Review?
Included in this pack are simple math games that are perfect for partners or groups of 3-4 players. There are 12 different card games included.

How do we play?
The premise of the game is that each student takes turns drawing a card from the pile and answering the question. If correct, the student keeps the card. However, if the student draws a “Lose All Cards” card, then ALL the player’s cards must return to the pile. The player with the most cards at the end of game play wins.

How is this different from other math card games?
The benefit of this game is that students can play the game multiple times, but based on chance, a different player can win each time! Each of the “bang” cards that cause students to lose their cards are different and match the theme of the game. The novelty of the different “Bang” cards keeps kids engaged! The cards can be used for other games such as Scoot, or even tic-tac-toe!

What is included?
There are 16 different math cards included in each set. Each card set includes a “cover” and 4 themed “lose all cards” card. An answer key is also included so students can check themselves. Please note that NO recording sheets are included in this pack. However, a generic Scoot form is included, if the teacher would like to use the cards for Scoot.

How can I save on printing?

How can I store these?
The card games can be stored in either sandwich sized zip lock bags or the in 4”x6” photo boxes found at Michaels called the Iris photo boxes.
Another simple and easy way to store the cards are 6” x9” clasp envelopes that can be can be found at an office supply store. The benefit of this system is that the cards are stored flat and compact and would be easy to file away in a file cabinet.
