How many learning games do you have that are both fun and educational for all ages of your children? I have found one in Math Facts Fun! From my preschooler just learning to count to my preteen beginning algebra, they all enjoy rolling the dice together and discovering how numbers intertwine. Find out how you can win your own Math Facts Fun set, too, below!
Math Facts Fun is a bingo-style game with several playing variations according to the child’s ability. Level one teaches number recognition; children count the dots on the die and cover the numeral on their playing board with a tiddlywink. Level two begins set skills, as the child counts or adds the amount on two dice. Level three allows adding or subtracting for each play, and levels four through six increase the difficulty with multiplication and division rules and the use of a 12-sided die.
Playing Math Facts Fun is an excellent way to re-enforce multiple math skills: number recognition; sets; addition facts; subtraction facts; multiplication facts; division facts; and fact families. Older students are even introduced to strategy and beginning probability in Levels 4, 5 and 6, in which they choose one math fact out of several possibilities each turn to complete a winning three in a row.
Math Facts Fun comes with very simple instructions, dice, and five game boards (and permission to reproduce them for your family so everyone can play together!). Additional bonus material includes a hundred number chart, multiplication skip-counting charts, a list of prime numbers with an explanation of them, and an introduction to “The Sieve of Eratosthenes.”
Math Facts Fun game and bonus learning materials is a wealth of mathematics educational resources in an enjoyable package all your children will love. It makes an excellent addition to your most trusted math resources and manipulatives for literal math learning.
