Mental Math Practice - Auctioneer Game
Created by The Math Pantry
This game has been such a favorite with students! There are enough game cards to be used throughout the entire year to help students quickly recall their mental math facts.
Objective: To practice the mental math skills of multiplication, division, addition and subtraction of numbers from 1-10, and applying terms like half, double, and square root.
Included: 15 Auctioneer game cards, each with five auctions, 2 Sheets of scoring chips (1 large, 1 small size according to your preference. My preference is the large size. I print out many sheets of these and cut and laminate them for scoring use all year. It is a good idea to have ≈80 chips for use in this game)
Directions: I have played this simple game daily, one card per day, with students to practice their basic math tables with speed and accuracy… and it is such a favorite with them! For each “Auction,” read the operation at whatever speed is slightly challenging for your students. (By the end of the year, you’ll be amazed at the fast pace they can follow you as the auctioneer!) After finishing one “auction,” have students say their final answer one by one. Be careful to have your “top” students answer last, to avoid unsure students merely repeating the answers of others. Award one scoring chip to each student who found the correct answer. After all five auctions, the student(s) with the most scoring chips wins!
