Having Fun With Math Fact Games

All math is built upon a foundation of memorizing simple math facts, which is why finding math fact games can be so crucial to children, especially those with ADHD and/or dyscalculia who aren’t inclined to learn as fluidly from a worksheet. Repetition is key to being successful in producing a firm foundation for all other math to build upon.

Math Fact Games are perfect for having fun while learning.math fact games

Most children love card games, such as: Go Fish, Memory, Old Maid and War. We’ve created four decks of math fact cards (examples: 6+7 =; 8-2 =; 3X4 =; 20/5 =) are the perfect way to have fun while learning math. The players will follow the rules of the popular named card games, but will need to figure out what ‘card value’ each card is to accurately play the games. [Read more…]

Math Games for Multiplication

Not everyone likes math, especially memorizing multiplication tables. That’s why it’s important to play some multiplication math games. And the best part is you don’t need a math tutor to get your kids interested in learning.

Another math game for kids

In Europe they call it Super Roulette but here in the states it doesn’t really have a “common name” understood by everyone. I’d almost call it spinning top roulette.  Here’s how it works and why it is a great math game for kids. [Read more…]

Games for kids who don’t like math

I’m excited to tell you about some  simple games for kids who don’t like math. Not only are they simple but they’re super fun.

I hate to say it but I empathize with kids who don’t like math. It’s not always easy and some of it is so far removed from their lives, I can see why they don’t understand what it’s for.

But it’s important and makes life a whole lot easier later on.  Sure there’s calculators, but you’d be surprised how many times you do instant adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing on a daily basis. Let’s at least learn those parts well.

We can leave calculus for another day.
