Now that your well-deserved summer break is just around the corner, it's a great time to plan ways to make sure your child's math skills stay strong over the summer!
At Mathnasium, we're experts at helping kids improve their math skills while having fun! Throughout the summer our students look forward to learning with us and they have a blast getting ready for the school year to come. Over the next few weeks, we'll be sharing several blog posts outlining suggestions for keeping math fun and keeping your child engaged in math learning over the summer. Find out more about exciting games you can play this summer below:
A fun, family-friendly board game in which players move around the board buying and trading properties, building up properties by buying houses and hotels, and charging the other game players rent. Play the game with "dollar" bills only-the debit card version is not as educational.
Math War is a fun variation on the classic card game that challenges players to perform a calculation (in this case, multiplication). The player with the highest product wins the hand!
Set is a fun, portable (deck of cards) game that tests visual perception and pattern recognition by challenging players to choose three cards that all follow the same pattern or a different one.
Battleship is an engaging game for older kids that tests memory and spatial reasoning skills. Based on a numbered and lettered grid, guess where your opponent's game pieces are positioned. First one to "sink" all of their opponent's battleships wins.
