Educator Testimonial

This isn’t just a book of math games. The games are wonderful for developing and practicing mental math strategies, but my favorite part of the book is the Before, During, After the Game page. This page helps me to introduce the game in a way that directly connects it to a strategy, helps me know what I should be looking for while the students are playing and even has suggestions for how to structure a wrap up discussion to help the students process the math involved in the game.
