Math is Fun
Math games are fun and are best for reviewing and practicing, not teaching new concepts. To teach new things, teachers use specific strategies. Families can use games to help review and build fluency.
Playing math games together can help you get a better sense of your child’s strengths and challenges. If your child wins (or just has fun) playing a math game, it can boost confidence. Parents can reduce math anxiety by using these games without the element of speed. Lastly, using the visual supports like the 120 chart and multiplication table can support students while they have fun and build math fluency.
