Acing math

As often as possible, learning should feel like fun and games. Get the fun started in your classroom using only an ordinary deck of playing cards. Visit the site The Positive Engagement Project for games covering addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions, percents, decimals, patterns, positive and negative integers.

Why am I so crazy about these games? Different students can choose and play different games during the same lesson and even within the same game, different learners can address different goals. Two different students who play a game like Multiplication War, for instance, need not have the same learning target. One might be focused on calculator use while the other may need to practice mental math.
