MathMath should be fun, so please play Math games with your children! Each week I will post a new math game that you can play with your child. (For $2 you can buy dice and playing cards at your local dollar store and be ready to play these games!) – Math Interventionist Steve Smith

This week's game: Over-Under Grades: 3-5
Players: Groups of two
Materials: Deck of cards with face cards removed, Aces worth one
Skill: Multiplication
How to Play: Players split a deck of cards. Player 1 is the Under 30 player and Player 2 is the Over 30 player. Each player turns over a card at the same time and the two numbers are multiplied together. If the product is less than 30, the Player 1 keeps the cards. If the product is greater than 30, Player 2 keeps the cards. If the answer is exactly 30 each player takes back their card and places it back in their deck. When all the cards have been used the person with the most cards is the winner.
