This is a great math game to use with your whole math group, or even in math centers.
*Basic Multiplication facts (1-6 and 4-9)
*Game board (Just print, and play!)
*Counters or chips as markers
Students should each have a different colored chips so they can distinguish their markers from each other.
Player 1 takes their chip and chooses a factor below. The second player chooses a factor, and then multiplies the two numbers together. He/She then places a counter on a square that has the product of the two factors.
Now Player 1 must use the last factor chosen by player 2, but then move their chip below to a new factor. Player 1 will then multiply those two numbers, and place a counter on the square above that is the product of the two numbers.
Play continues like this until someone has 3 in a row on the game board.
