Fun Math Games For the Classroom or Home

Math games are perfect for school and home.

By introducing a few fun math games into the classroom or homework routine, you will turn I HATE math! into I LOVE math!.

Best of all, children dont even know they are doing math when it is this much fun. Just ensure that children are challenged.

Included below are some fun math games for kids for use at home or at school. These are games to practice number skills.

Higher or Lower
This is a great math game for practicing order of numbers.
You can work with numbers that have 2 digits, 3 digits or more.
Firstly select the upper and lower number limits, e.g. between 10 and 100.
One player chooses a number and writes it on a piece of paper.
The other player/s guesses what they think the number might be. For every guess the first player tells if the chosen number is higher or lower. Play until until the number is guessed.

Find It First
Use this fun math game to practice basic multiplication tables (or addition, subtraction or division also).
Simply write the answers to tables you are going to practice, randomly over the board or paper, e.g. to practice eight times tables write - 8, 16, 24, 32, 40 etc. To make the game a bit more challenging, you can add a few other numbers.
Two kids stand or sit either side to the numbers and a multiplication table is given, e.g. 7 times 8.
Children compete to be the quickest to find the answer.
The first point to the answer, receives a point and the first to score three points becomes the winner.
This game is great as a whole class game with children representing their team or you can have a tournament to see who the class champion is with each child having a turn.

Largest Number
You'll love this one. It is a simple and fun math game that really engages children.
Each person rolls the dice. Use
-3 dice for children to practice 3 digit numbers
-4 dice for children to practice 4 digit numbers
-5 dice for children to practice 5 digit numbers
-6 dice for children to practice 6 digit numbers
Each player rolls the dice and records the numbers that are shown, e.g. 3 4 1 6.
Next, the players organize the digits to make the highest possible number that they can, e.g. 6431.
The player with the highest number receives one point.

Twenty Questions Number Game
No equipment is required for this kids' math game.
To begin with choose a number within the range to be played, e.g. 1- 20, 1-100, 100-1000.
The number is recorded on paper but not shown to the other players.
The other players then ask questions to help them to identify the number.
Only yes/no questions can be used.
Encourage children to ask general questions to begin with, e.g. Is it odd? Is it higher than 50? Instead of trying to guess the number, e.g. Is it 38?

Playing games in math offers so much more than just a bit of fun. These games also help to develop a deep understanding of math concepts and a confident attitude towards a sometimes unpopular subject. You may even be surprised when hear, Gee that was fun! Can we play again?
