Math lends itself naturally to the use of games during teaching. The endless variety of number combinations as well as the ability to incorporate different math functions such as addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division, gives students a chance to practice and play at the same time. Using games to help reinforce math concepts also engages students who might otherwise resist this subject.
To create a true attention-grabber, introduce math games by Gynzy throughout your lessons by using your interactive whiteboard. Teach a concept then use a game to review them before moving on to the next section. This will not only help your students practice what they’ve just learned, it will also help them stay tuned-in throughout the lesson since they’ll never be sure when another game will surface!
Gynzy offers a variety of math games that educators can send to their students and integrate into their lessons. To access our online whiteboard and Library of standards-aligned educational content, create an account today.
Multiplication and Times Tables
Multiplication games are a fun way for students to practice their times tables and help the subject seem less intimidating and more approachable. Connect the Dots gives students a fun way to practice at their own pace and is good for a personal device like a tablet. For a different challenge, our Math & Movement activity has students answer questions while jogging in place!
