The Math You Can Play Series
Wouldn’t it be wonderful if math was something your kids WANTED to do?
Your children can practice their math skills with basic items you already have around the house, such as playing cards and dice. Each book in the Math You Can Play series features twenty or more kid-tested math games, offering a variety of challenges for all ages.
If you are a parent, these games provide opportunities to enjoy quality time with your children. If you are a classroom teacher, use the games as warm-ups and learning center activities or for a relaxing review day at the end of a term. If you are a tutor or homeschooler, make games a regular feature in your lesson plans to build your students’ mental math skills.
“It revolutionized our homeschool this year.”
