Math Outside the Book

By: Nancy Bjorkman


This interactive workshop will cover the why’s and how’s of using games to bring math to life and to increase understanding in students. We will discuss how to use games to enhance any curriculum. Then, we will dive into a highly visual and interactive review of games to use for everything from understanding number basics, to getting the facts straight, to learning the base ten system and operations. Responses to this workshop in the past have been overwhelmingly positive. In order for everyone to be able to “take the workshop” home with them, she has put together a packet of twenty games that you can purchase for a minimal cost to use right away at home.
