Games are an essential tool for learning in the elementary school setting. A few benefits of math games in the classroom include:
- Encourage strategic mathematical thinking
- Development of computational fluency
- Present opportunities for practice
- Support a school-to-home connection
Earlier this week, Grade 5/6 played a game called Blocko to familiarize ourselves with concepts in Data Management and Probability. During this opportunity, students learned about the difference between theoretical and experimental probability.
