'Target Number' is a fantastic math game that reinforces key foundational skills related to addition, subtraction and multiplication. The aim of the game is for players to get as close to the target number as possible, using either addition or multiplication. The concept of 'difference' is practised, with children using subtraction to find the difference between their total and the target. An element of strategy is also involved, whereby players need to think carefully about how they can generate a number sentence that will result in a total as close as possible to the target!
Included in this pack are six differentiated versions of 'Target Number' to ensure that all children within your class are being appropriately challenged! The focus of each game ranges from single digit addition and subtraction to double digit multiplication.
