Have you ever considered a Math Games Day at your school? Providing students with math games encourages consolidation of concepts studied in class. Students are able to apply their mathematical knowledge while increasing their skills. Math games often foster a positive attitude towards a particular math concept. When games are differentiated, students are able to succeed regardless of their level.
Math games played in the classroom become excellent home-school connections as well. Students are often able to “teach” their parents concepts gained in the classroom. Students whose first language is not English gain instructional “know how” as well. Games are common in a variety of cultures. Simple math games are quickly learned through direct observation and social interaction.
