Math Recovery

A Year of Small Steps - Weeks 31-33

Take a break and PLAY some math!

As spring weather finally arrives, it's a perfect time of year to PLAY math. Students love secrets and games, so get out your 0 to 100 card deck and have some fun trying out IA3.6 Secret Numbers. Since you only need six non-sequential number cards, it's an easy game to set-up with small groups of students. You can easily differentiate this activity by choosing the right range of numbers and you can extend the game by asking students to name the number before and after each card. Students could be challenged to "fill in" the missing blanks with numbers on sticky notes or blank note cards.
