Students love math games and puzzles, but how much are they really learning from the experience? In the third book of the popular Well Played series authors Linda Dacey, Karen Gartland, and Jayne Bamford Lynch help you engage students in deep mathematical discussions, enhance students’ conceptual understanding, develop students’ fluency with number systems, ratio and proportional relationships, expressions and equations, statistics and probability, and patterns, graphs, and functions.
Each book in the series shows you how to make games and puzzles an integral learning component that provides teachers with unique access to student thinking.
The twenty-five games and puzzles in each of the Well Played books, which have all been field-tested in diverse classrooms, contain:
- explanations of the mathematical importance of each game or puzzle and how it supports student learning;
- variations for each game or puzzle to address a range of learning levels and styles;
- clear step-by-step directions; and
- classroom vignettes that model how best to introduce the featured game or puzzle.
