Math ideas/games

  • Here a few math games that are easy to play using a deck of cards. I have borrowed these ideas from other sites.

    Dealing Up Fact Families

    To Play:

    1. Remove all face cards and aces from the deck. Give each participant an addition, subtraction, and equal sign.

    2. Hand out six cards to each player.

    3. Set a timer and see how many fact families each player can create in a set amount of time.

    4. Shuffle deck and play again.

    * To add movement, place the equation signs around the room or outdoor space. Have participants get up and gather a sign each time they are needed.
