Rhyming text describes a line of 100 ants traveling to reach a picnic. They start in one long line of 100, but to get there faster one ant suggests dividing into two lines of fifty, then four lines of twenty-five, then five lines of twenty, and finally ten lines of ten. The changes in their formation take them so long, though, that the food is gone by the time they arrive…

This is a game that I have seen in a number of classrooms over the years. Not only is the game beautiful and colorful, but it’s also fun and mathematical at the same time! Each player rolls the dice and uses addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division to make their way to the center of the board…

This game for 2-4 players gives your child practice with both multiplication and division facts through 100. Players use their cards to complete fact families on the triangle game board; the first player to use all of his or her cards and call out “tri-FACTA!” wins…

Zupelz is great for using math skills and knowledge, as well as logical thinking and deductive reasoning. There are 100 puzzles in each box, and the answers and a progress chart to keep track of which puzzles your child has completed…

In this set, the 24 cards have two wheels, each with three numbers. One number is missing from each wheel, and the object is to find a variable number (any whole number from 1 through 9) which, when used with the other numbers on each wheel, can make 24 on both wheels…

Just like the other sets of 24 cards, each card in this set has four numbers on it and you must use all four numbers to make the number 24. You can use any of the four operations, but each number on the card must be used exactly once. However, now you have the added challenge…
