It would be absolutely fabulous and generous of you if you LIKED it after watching.If you didn't like it, well... you had better tell me as well.
Try one on for size.
Teaching Math Games is serious business. Sure it can be fun, but the essence is learning Math.
This lesson is on BOMDAS.
Students get a Number Grid. (The template is available in the book)
Kids get a number sentence grid. If the kids haven't seen a number sentence grid before, then you have your first teaching episode.
I would most certainly be teaching the concepts of BOMDAS and priority of signs before hand.
I would also be teaching students about using brackets and what the operations each do to numbers.
Start off by giving the kids the number grid. A deck of cards is placed in the middle of the table.
In turn, players turn a card up and places it on the discard pile.
Each player writes this digit in the placement grid in any location of their choice. This is where the fun starts and learning is challenged, because kids have to work out the best location for the number.
When I last used at one of my relief teaching gigs, I just wandered around and listened to the conversation while the kids were playing. You know sometimes, when you are relief teaching, it just feel right!
As the game progresses and the number sentence grid starts to fill up, math thinking and problem solving starts to kick it.
Then the challenge starts because the cards don't always fall the way you want. Inside the grid is a discard section where kids can place numbers they don't want to use.
However, there is only 6 spaces, so this is where teaching math games comes into play. In 41 Math Card Game, choices need to be made. These Math Games really force math thinking.
Math Games - last grid of math games. Unwanted cards will need to placed in blank squares making the number sentences incorrect. The winner will be the player with most correct number sentences.
Number sentences are ticked when correct but as cards have to be used to fill up blank squares, some number sentences will be incorrect.
Can you see the math skills required to solve these math problems?
Each player will be taking a different approach.
When I used these math games in my last relief teaching gig, kids were looking at other sheets, comparing how their sheets look
.Prime math thinking, talking and problem solving. Does it get any better than this?
You can find this book in my shop.
