A Fun Game that Teaches Multiplication Facts!

A Fun Game that Teaches Multiplication Facts!
By Tim W

Learning basic multiplication facts is a challenge for many students. Students need to memorize basic facts so they will be able to answer them quickly when solving advanced math problems. Students that do not memorize basic multiplication and division facts often struggle with math in the higher grades.

So how do you motivate kids to learn their basic math facts? Simply reciting facts or practicing with flashcards isn't enough to get kids excited to learn. Instead, try some hands-on games that make learning math facts more fun!

Here's one multiplication game your child can play with a parent, sibling, or friend.

Game: Multiplication Draw

Number of players: 2 or more

Materials: A deck of 52 playing cards; Blank paper & pencil for scoring

Each number card is worth face value. Jacks, queens, and kings are worth 10, 11, and 12 respectively. Aces are worth 1.

To play the game, shuffle the deck of cards. Player 1 picks two cards from the top of the deck. He will then multiply the cards together. For example, if player 1 drew a queen and a 3, he would multiply 11 and 3 to get 33 points.

Each player takes turns drawing two cards, multiplying them, and writing their products on the score sheet.

When the the last card in the deck is drawn, players add the products on the score sheet. The player with the highest score in the winner.
