Here’s a mental math card game




3, 4  

Title – Mental Math Cards
By – Jamie Rettke
Subject – Math
Grade Level – 3-4

Topic : Mathematics

Standards :

·         State Goal 6: Demonstrate and apply a knowledge and sense of numbers, including numeration and operations.

·         Learning Standard 6.B: Investigate, represent, and solves problems using number facts, operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication, division) and their properties, algorithms, and relationships.

·         Learning Benchmark 6.B.2: Solve one- and two-step problems involving whole numbers, fractions, and decimals using addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division.

Objectives : When asked, the students will be able to:

1.       Use mental-math to solve one- and two-step mathematical problems

Procedures :

·         Games are color-coded.  Only use one color set at a time.

·         Pass out one set of card to the students (one card per student).  Have one person begin by reading their card.  For example, a student may read, “I have 8, who has 3×6?”  Another student will have a card with the solution and would then read their card, “I have 18, who has 5×7?”  Each student will go in turn reading his or her cards and finding a student with the solution.  It is important that all students are seated quietly so they may hear the math problem to determine if they have the corresponding card.
