Mr. Brown© Math Practice Games

Royalty© – Multiplication Facts Practice
Materials: deck of playing cards, a score sheet and pencil.

Regular Play: After shuffling, two or more players take turns picking two cards and multiplying them. They earn 5 points for each correct answer. Jacks are played as lls, queens are 12s. If they pick a Royalty, or king, they replace it in the deck, then get two other turns. A joker means you lose a turn.

Fact Family Practice: If you only want to practice 3’s problems or 7’s problems or any fact family, you can just lay out a seven card, a three or whichever you want to practice, and pick one other from the deck.

If you want to practice 1s through 5s, you can have a second stack of just an ace, 2, 3, 4, and 5. Then you pick one card from that stack and a second card from the big stack and multiply them.

Diciplication© – Multiplication Facts PracticeMaterials: dice or number cubes (dice with numbers instead of dots.) Number cubes with 12 sides will work for all fact families. You can buy them inexpensively at toy stores.

Roll two dice and multiply the numbers facing up. For individual fact families, only roll one die and multiply it times the number being practiced.

Diciplication Extreme© – Multiplication and Addition Practice

Materials: 20 sided dice or number cubes (can be found at Fun & Games on Massachucetts Street in Lawrence)Roll two dice and multiply the numbers together. Many problems will include one or two 2 digit numbers. Keep a running total of products, adding a new product to it at the end of each turn. The first person to reach 500 wins and gets to shout, “500!”. This is currently my class’ favorite math game.
