Make Learning Math A Game

Children like to play games. Many adults also like to play games. So why not use this information to help your students, whatever their age, become better at learning math?

I was reading an interesting article about a local girl who has become the national champion for three years in a row at playing a math game called “First In Math”.

You can read the article here:

Philadelphia girl makes math a game – and excels

Considering that she is currently a sixth grader, it’s amazing to see the types of problems she’s able to solve.

Games can be fun and challenging and all the while, they help your child learn math more easily!

I hope you enjoyed the article and that it gave you some ideas on having your own math learner playing some good educational games.

Have a great day!

Math Games On Your i Devices

I just learned of a new math game that runs on the IOS (that means it will run on your iphone and ipad devices) that looks like it would be fun to play.

I was reading this article on the Globe and Mail.com website and became intrigued. Check it out here!

Threes Math Game

That someone can find a math game addicting is actually good news for me!  😉

So who is going to try this game and make a comment here to let me know how they liked it?

I would try it, but alas, I’m, tethered to an android device. So please check this out and let me know what you think?

Thanks so much and have a great day!

Math Is Better Than Logic!

I read an interesting article about math and logic for the NCAA championship game yesterday. And knowing that U-Conn beat Kentucky last night for the championship just proves the point that you really should trust math over logic!

Read the article here:

Logic Not Math Dictates Kentucky Will Beat UConn For NCAA Title

So as you can see, the author of that article was soooooo wrong!  😉

Math always beats logic, right?

Have a great day!

April Fools In The Math Class!

So everyone hates to get pranked on April Fools, right?

Well this Math teacher had a policy that if your cell phone rang in the classroom, you had to answer it on speaker-phone. The students used this policy to play an April fools joke on their teacher.

Check it out! – Oh and turn your volume down for the first second or two as it comes on loud!

BEST CLASSROOM APRIL FOOLS PRANK EVER

I’m thinking the math teacher may change his policy, what do you think?  🙂

Have a great day!
