Making Multiplying Fun!!!
Mathematical games are helpful in teaching new concepts and providing lots of opportunity for practice. In this game, students were given different cards and on each card a different number is written in each corner and a larger number in the center. For each card, the four numbers must be combined using any of these two patterns to get the answer written in the center.
_______ X ________ + ________ X _________
_______ X ________ – ________ X _________
This game has helped the students enhance their ability to think of different ways of getting to the answer.
