  • Board and Counter Games – You’ll find ideas for using game board grids, chess pieces, game markers or counters and other materials to play games that teach and reinforce math skills without seeming like math — which is great for the mathphobics in the house.
  • Card Games — Print out free card templates to play a game of SET!
  • Coin Games – Use coins to learn about chance and probability.
  • Domino Games — Find an ingenious use of a chess board and a set of dominoes to play the game, “Domineering.”
  • Paper & Pencil Games — A variety of math games you can play with nothing more than a paper and pencil. Great for traveling in the car — or when waiting in line or at the dentist’s office. :)
  • Paper & Scissor Game — This one requires strategy and manual dexterity.
