This card game can be used with elementary students learning basic operations, or with older students with more complex variables.
What you need:
- A bored kid (or two or three)
- Any math concept (addition, multiplication, division, even exponentials!)
- A deck of ordinary playing cards
- A pencil and paper for each player
What makes it fun is racing against a parent, sibling, or tutor!
I sometimes use this game as “reward” after a more challenging or complex math activity –
“Once we get this concept down, we’ll still have some time to play cards!”
Need help using the Coronavirus-related downtime in a way that is fun, productive, and helps your kids start the next year as confident math experts?
