The games use very simple materials, mostly cards and dice, and the few boards that are needed are provided. Each game also has tips on how to customise or extend it - maybe for players of different abilities, or non-competitive options. My children are always pleased, even excited, when I suggest one of these games, even ones that seem terribly simple like Tens Concentration. Sometimes they even ask to play them unprompted!
I have both books on Kindle, and really I would prefer a hard copy as it would be easier to keep handy, mark, and refer to during play. So get the paperbacks if you can!
It helps to make math fun, and this can be done by using math games. Addition and Subtraction is an amazing book that features 23 wonderful, kid-tested games using very simple materials, mostly cards and dice, including Concentration, War, Thirty-One, Nim, Bowling, Farkle, and even Snugglenumber, under four chapter headings: “Tens and Teens;” “Numbers to One Hundred;” “Mixed Operations;” and “Logic and Probability.” These can be used by either classroom teachers or homeschooling parents to offer a variety of challenges for early elementary-age students, kindergarten through grade four, especially those who may not be fans of traditional workbooks, to develop mental flexibility by playing with numbers, from basic math facts to the hundreds and beyond, build strategic thinking skills, and give them hands-on experience with probability. Author Denise Gaskins says in her Preface, “If you’ve read the Math You Can Play Series books in order, you will notice that I repeat myself in Sections I and III. I’m including the setup information and math teaching tips in each book, so the later ones can stand on their own.”
Books like this can be a very welcome complement to any mathematics curriculum to help make math more meaningful for youngsters. It’s not just a bunch of numerical facts to be learned so as to complete a worksheet as quickly as possible. Since God created the heavens and earth with mathematical precision, we should teach it as one of the important tools that we can use to help us discover the kinds of relationships that God has placed in this universe. The next two books planned for the series are Multiplication and Fractions: Math Games for Tough Topics, Grades 2-6 (late 2016), and Pre-Algebra and Geometry: Math Games for Middle School, Grades 4-9 (2017).
