Everyone loves the classic game of Bingo! This game puts a twist on the classic version and focuses on recognition – a way of accessing memory. Students are given a problem and need to find the solution on their bingo card. Five in a row gets them a Bingo!
This is a great game for helping students practice their arithmetic. It forces students to think of how to multiply or add to make a number rather than just regurgitate facts.
Students have been using flashcards to practice arithmetic for years – now it’s even better. Students can write directly on the flashcards! Pinch the flashcard if you need more room to draw pictures or write out the problem – pinch it again to answer the problem.
The types of problems are customizable: pick the biggest number, smallest number, operations, and whether you see negatives and decimals. Flashcard training focuses on recall memory – the ability to retrieve information.
Mad Math keeps tracks of the stats of multiple students. Each student gets a report of which facts they are struggling with and these can even be emailed to show off. Each correct problem also gets you closer to the next Mad Math Level.
