Educational maths games provide a simple and fun way to introduce and practise new concepts and topics. Children do not realise they are learning when they are having fun! At key stage one and key stage two level educational maths games can be played by small groups within a classroom setting to consolidate and reinforce earlier learning or to help individual pupils who are struggling in a particular area of the maths curriculum.
There are educational maths games which cover topics such as times tables, money handling and coin values, place value, fractions, decimals and percentages, addition and subtraction, telling the time and many more. Maths games can come in the form of board games, card games, puzzles, jigsaws and dice games. Teachers may find that maths games can be usefully included as part of a child’s homework activities with instructions included for a parent to join in and help as well.
These types of educational maths games are a good resource for key stage one especially where lots of reinforcement of key maths skills is important to lay the foundations of knowledge and an approach that is fun encourages learning in the children. Tapping into areas that are already popular with children is another way to encourage learning. Some educational maths games take advantage of this by using a football theme, which attracts children’s enthusiasm, especially boys. These types of games may seem to some to be diluting the maths content of educational resources, however, to others the main criteria is whether maths skills improve and whether pupils are motivated as a result.
