Math can get a bit tedious, for both students and teachers. So what can we do to break up the average mundane class period? Have some fun! How can we have fun and still reinforce concepts – with games!
Here’s several games that reinforce different math concepts for almost all ages. You can find even more on my pinterest board!
Ratio Rumble is an online game that has students build their own potions using equivalent ratios!
Contig is played with three dice and a game board – students use operations to take the results of their rolls and make new numbers to mark off on their game boards.
Tenzi is a very versatile game for covering many learning skills – even speech! There’s actually no one way to play – there’s even an add-on pack with instructions for 77 different ways to play Tenzi!
Set Game practices pattern finding skills – players must discover the different “sets” of same or different tiles depending on their shape, pattern, and color.
I hope these games give you a good starting point for your classroom! You can even come up with your own games, especially with a large amount of dice!
Do you already use games in the math classroom to reinforce concepts? What games have worked for you?
