Engaging Your Students in Math!
By Nancy Mikhail
Math games can be very engaging and beneficial for students to learn math concepts. Here is a game that one teacher described to me:
“Yesterday I was teaching my 5th graders about Addition Properties. Students had to know the three different properties and what the problems looked like that correlated with the property. I have very high and very low students in my class, so I usually split the time and work with both groups individually. After group time, we played a class game. I put the properties around the room and gave each student a math problem that correlated with that property. Students had to match the problem to the property around the room. Then after I checked their answers, they traded cards with each other then repeated the process. They had a blast doing this.”
