Math Play

I challenged myself to find a way to bring math games into our home and classroom.

The class has a tangrams game to play with, and you can find loads of tangram apps and puzzles online.

My mom is a mathematician. I grew up playing math games.

We played Mastermind at home. Now I create a new password for my iphone and ipad every day, if the boys want to use it, they have to codebreak it Mastermind style.

We keep a Games Magazine subscription on auto-renewal at home and work through the puzzles all month.

There are some good math toys out there. Goldie Blox bills themselves as “Construction toys for girls” but I bought them for my boys.

We play Logic Links, a game I discovered when Brady joined Math Club at school.

A few times a week, I visit his classroom with teasers and puzzles from my big book of 1000 Playthinks.

This book has challenges sorted by difficulty level.
