Foreword Maths Games Book 3 is a book of games designed to reinforce and consolidate a variety of mathematical concepts with an emphasis on language. Children need to develop their mathematical vocabulary so that they can talk about, improve and relate their mathematical ideas. If children do not have this vocabulary to talk about and understand mathematical operations, they may not progress. According to Pollock and Waller (1994), ‘.... extra lessons which consist of more of the same, can aggravate students’ feelings of failure and convince them that they will never be able to do maths’. Hence, playing games is an ideal way to reinforce concepts and gain consolidation.

pl e

Maths Games Book 3 will motivate children to explore and learn mathematics in the safe and familiar environment of game playing.

Play allows children to move from their actual stage of development to a higher zone called the zone of potential development. Lev Vygotsky

Sa m

Early childhood play fades to become games with rules which help children to take part in society. Piaget, Bruner, Vygotsky Other titles in this series are: Maths Games Book 1 Maths Games Book 2

Teachers Notes Maths Games Book 3 has been written for children to reinforce and consolidate mathematical concepts. It is predicted that most children will use concrete materials (such as blocks or a number line) to help calculate the answers to the sums at first. After playing the games a number of times, children may not require the concrete materials but will answer the questions through automatic recall and by using mental strategies. Assistance from more able children, the teacher and other adult helpers should also decline over time. The rules of each game are explained clearly on a teachers page. Children who are capable of playing the games without adult assistance can also help other groups playing the same game. Each game board is accompanied by a teachers page. Objectives to match each game are included so that results can be transferred to assessment records.

Fraction Squish Objective

Identifies parts of a whole as fractions, decimal and percentages.

Number of players The game is for two to four players.

What you need to play the game • • • •

The materials required to play the game are listed.

die calculator one ‘Squish’ game board four sets of different coloured counters (16 counters altogether)

How to play

The recommended number of players for each game is shown.

Sa m

1. Each player decides which character to be. The child places his/her four same-colour counters on each of the four characters. The aim is to take each counter across the game board to the opposite side. 2. Each player moves in turn, by throwing a die and moving a counter the corresponding number of spaces. Players can move in a straight line forwards only. Players may not move diagonally. 3. As players land on a box with a shape, they follow the instruction that matches the number on the die. Players calculate ... what fraction is shaded

the fraction shaded as a decimal

Explicit instructions are included.

the percentage shaded; e.g., 1/8 = 0.125 = (0.125 x 100) =12.5% Objective: Identifies parts of a whole as fractions, decimal and percentages.

4. If a player lands on an opponent’s counter, the opponent is ‘squished’ and sent back to start the journey again. 5. The game ends when one player has reached the opposite side of the game board with all four counters. * Players may require a calculator to calculate percentages.

Blank Game Proformas Blank game boards have been included on pages viii to xii for teachers to customise. The game boards will suit children or groups who require further consolidation (or overlearning) but with different sums. Teachers will also be able to extend children using the blank game proformas by writing more challenging sums in the appropriate places. Answers Answers for games that require them have been included on pages 89 – 94. Prim-Ed Publishing – www.prim-ed.com

Teachers Notes Educational games have considerable value in classrooms. Play coordinates learning by: • bringing together different types of learning, • helping children understand ideas, feelings and relationships, • helping children to make connections.

Games: aid understanding of rules, help children face challenges in a ‘safe’ environment, give children a sense of belonging, make children feel secure.

pl e

• • • •

The use of games and puzzles in the classroom can provide the opportunities for many skills to be developed and consolidated. Children will tackle unfamiliar problems and processes, learning skills such as mathematical decision making and reasoning mathematically. Maths games can also build and improve communication skills as many of the games and activities require paired or grouped participation. • • • • • • •

Sa m

Games and activities also:

help stimulate the use of mathematical language, are highly motivational because the child is actively participating and is in control, involve immediate feedback and an element of competition, have well-defined limits and directions, are meaningful experiences, somewhere between concrete reality and abstract work, can be used to consolidate class work or to encourage and enable a child to extend his or her skills, can be fun for adults too!

Suggestion for classroom and home use

• Classroom assistants are ideal partners to aid children who require ‘overlearning’. • Consider using children to ‘buddy’ less able children, not only to teach them how to play but to aid them during the game. • Encourage children (once they know how to play the game) to take their game home and play it with adults and friends as ‘homework’. • Remember that parents want to help their children but not all know how to help. Games are an ideal format to empower parents in a ‘safe’ environment. The mathematical concepts that have been taught in the classroom can be reinforced and consolidated at home.

1. The first player rolls the two dice and adds the numbers shown. 2. The player moves the corresponding number of places. 3. When a player lands on a number, he/she decides whether it is a number that you round up or round down. • If the number in the tenths place is .5 or more, the player must round up to the nearest whole number. The player moves his or her counter to that number. • If the number in the tenths place is less than .5, he/she must round down to the whole number. The player moves his or her counter to that number. 4. If a player shakes the dice and lands on a black space, he/she cannot round up or down and so remains there until his/her next turn. 5. Each player takes a turn moving appropriately. 6. The first player to reach the target is the winner.

1. The player(s) reads the instructions at the top of the sheet. 2. He/She chooses either the multiplication or division trail to begin with and works out the sum in the first box. 3. The player writes the answer in the box and then searches for the next box which shows the ‘trail number’. The player(s) cannot move backwards or diagonally. 4. Once the first trail is completed, the player(s) begins the other trail.* Note: Player(s) could use two different coloured pencils to avoid confusion. This continues until both trails have been completed. 5. An adult/helper checks that the trails are correct. * If two children are playing, they can take a trail each and race each other to the finish or have a copy of the game board each and race to complete both trails (correctly).

Objective: Reinforces the language of multiplication and division (6 times table).

1. Players place their counter on ‘Start’. 2. The first player rolls the die and moves the corresponding spaces. 3. When he/she lands, the sum on the rectangle must be calculated.* If he/she knows the correct answer, a bonus of moving forward one place can be taken. If the player says an incorrect answer, the player must stay where he/she is. 4. The first player to reach the target is the winner. * Answers could be checked on a calculator if there is doubt, but players must be aware of the advantage given to their opponent. If a player is sure of the answer but the opponent disagrees and the answer is checked and found to be correct, the opponent must move back one.

1. Each player places his/her counter on the car or bike at the start of the game. 2. The first player rolls the die and moves the corresponding number of spaces. Players should complete the sum in the space. If the answer is correct they can roll the die the next time. If it isn’t, they miss a turn. Note: if an adult/helper is not available to assist, answers could be checked on a calculator but players must be aware of the advantage they are giving to their opponent. 3. Players landing on a patterned cloud follow the instruction key on the game board. 4. The first to reach the trophy is the winner. * Ideally, children will complete the calculations in each cloud by using mental strategies; however, some children may need concrete materials, pencil and paper or a calculator to begin with.

1. Each player decides which character to be. The child places his/her four same-colour counters on each of the four characters on one side of the board. 2. The aim is to take each counter across the game board to the opposite side. 3. Each player moves in turn, by throwing a die and moving a counter the corresponding number of spaces. 4. If a player lands on a square containing a picture, he/she must verbally give the answer. If a player cannot work it out, the other players or an adult can help. Players can move in a straight line forwards only. Players may not move diagonally. 5. If a player lands on an opponent’s counter, the opponent is ‘squished’ and sent back to start the journey again. 6. The game ends when one player has reached the opposite side of the game board with all four counters.

1. Each player decides which character to be. The child places his/her four same-colour counters on each of the four characters. The aim is to take each counter across the game board to the opposite side. 2. Each player moves in turn, by throwing a die and moving a counter the corresponding number of spaces. Players can move in a straight line forwards only. Players may not move diagonally. 3. (a) Time – 1 As players land on a box with a clock, they tell the time in words if an even number (2, 4, 6) has been rolled, and tell the digital time if an odd number (1, 3, 5) has been rolled. (b) Time – 2 As players land on a box with a clock, they tell the time in the 24-hour clock as an a.m. time if an even number (2, 4, 6) is rolled, and as a p.m. time if an odd number (1, 3, 5) is rolled. If a player cannot work it out, the other player or an adult may help. 4. If a player lands on an opponent’s counter, the opponent is ‘squished’ and sent back to start the journey again. Note: More than one counter from each player may be in play at the same time. 5. The game ends when one player has reached the opposite side of the game board with all four counters.
