Category Description for Math Card Games
Both supplements to RightStart Math, the spiral-bound book describes 300 card games
your child can play using the 6 special card decks (sold separately). Games are divided
into eight main categories: number sense, addition, clocks, multiplication, money, subtraction, division, and fractions. The book now includes an instructional DVD that shows how to play 14 of the games featured in the book. The DVD is also available separately if you have an earlier version of the book. Please note that book and cards are separate items, but meant to be used together.
Card decks are also available individually. The Addition (Basic) Games cards are a set of 132-3”x 2” cards numbered 0 – 10. Corner Games cards includes 50-1 ½”x 1 ¾” cards with numbers 1 through 10 printed in the corners (no two cards are alike). Fraction Games cards are a set of 75-2”x3” cards that includes 20 percentage cards that correspond to the fractions. There are 100-2”x3” cards in the Multiplication Games set that correspond to numbers in the multiplication table from 1x1 to 10x10.
These math games are FUN!!! We have had this set almost a year, and my 10yo son and 7yo daughter both greatly enjoy it. They have memorized so many math facts- without trying. The games serve 2 purposes- 1. to help children enjoy math and playing around with numbers, and 2. to replace boring, mind-numbing drills. I have yet to meet a child who enjoyed endless math drills; But this set provides practice for all the different math facts, in the most painless way. The set is a great value because it covers, basically, all forms of K-5 math. I was worried the games wouldn't be interesting enough or varied enough for frequent use, but they are. We use them both during the school day and at night with dad, just for fun. In fact, one of my friends (a chemist and math wiz) uses this set as her only math 'curriculum' for her children until starting them with geometry and pre-algebra in 7th grade. Yes- they are THAT good! I can't recommend this math game set highly enough.
