This is my favourite cool maths resource of all time. I have said before that worksheets are your tools. A worksheet does not make a good teacher any more than a hammer makes a good builder. I was a bit sceptical when I looked at the Making Math Fun series. The last thing I need as a relief teacher is a time-waster. But these Cool Math Games had me at "Hello". But it gets better. Theresa (the author) keeps sending me free stuff all the time. Stuff that I can use all the time.
These cool maths activities are great!
I bought whole the series for myself and use them all the time. But you can buy just what you need to.
Let's face it, math can be fun but not all kids think it is.
The goal of mathematics is active learning.
That's where you need some cool maths activities that cater for different learning styles and abilities.
Kids are used to being entertained.
But "entertained" doesn't always equal active learning.
Nor do all math activities.
That's where the Making Math Fun series is such a fabulous series for teachers.
Every one of the hundreds of math games and math activities has a clear math skills.
Active learning is the primary focus with each one of the math activities catering for different learning styles.
Clearly what worked in the past, doesn't necessarily work today.
Many kids don't want to learn math skills or practice math, but kids appreciate active learning and cool maths games.
No wonder you feel frustrated!
You know that math skills are vital to every child’s future.
But many kids struggle with math and don't enjoy it at all.
It doesn't have to be like this!
Imagine having, at your disposal, hundreds of cool maths games that
Even when you ask them to.
Wouldn't that be great?
There are far too many cool maths activities to share, but here are a few.
|Tell me this isn't a cool maths game!The game is 27. There are 6 games to a sheet. Kids play in a pairs. They colour a hexagon in turn. The first to 27 wins. Tell me that's not a brilliant idea. It would be fabulous for those early finishers and I reckon even bigger kids would go for this one. And the math that they are practising while playing. Gold!|
Imagine the satisfaction from seeing your kid's math skills soar and their grades going up.

|The other one that impressed me was this one. This will test the strategists in the class. Colour in either 1,2,3 or 4 dots. Dots have to be connected in a vertical or horizontal row. Person who colours the last dot wins. There are 15 to a sheet.|
I use these as games for the grandkids when they come over.

I would imagine your budget is limited for resources (and whose isn't). If you buy one resource this year, I reckon this ought to be the one.
