Product Description:

How do you create 16 simple math games with 66 cards? Using tiny polka dots, of course! This unassuming deck comes in 6 "suits" of different colors representing numbers 0-10. Each suit represents these numbers differently: characters, 10-frames, domino rows, different-sized polka dots, etc. Each game is made from using these suits together or separately: for example, PowerDot (equivalent to War) is made by shuffling several decks together and dealing 11 cards to each player. Hungry Numbers is a simpler game which involves matching a "polka dot suit" card to the appropriate "character suit" (0-5), and Dot Tens is the same concept but uses different suits of dots 0-10. Each game reinforces a different numerical concept; PowerDot demonstrates correspondence and comparative operations, while the other two reinforce counting and matching. Other games range in complexity and teach different skill sets. And of course, the cards provide an excellent base for creating your own math (and even logic) games! For 1-6 players.

Winner of several awards, including Creating Child Magazine's 2017 Product of the Year award and the Parent's Choice Gold Award.

Bought it for a student who needs additional assistance with concepts covered in the classroom. Had received it as a gift from another educational organization. Used it in the classroom already and my whole class enjoyed it. Included in it is a variety of games that go along with the different sets of number cards.

the BEST
I am a math teacher. I bought this to use with my own children. I think it is particularly valuable for the preschool-3rd grade age but have played several games with my 4th grader as well. Essentially, this is just like a deck of cards only the numbers are shown in multiple ways (mostly different dot patterns). Included are 16 different games. I enjoyed watching the instructions for games on youtube from the creator, Dan Finkel (math4love). This makes practice fun and also unique. Watch some game videos and you will see everything you can do with these cards and if you are like me you will make up a few of your own as well!
