 Math Game Homepage --Free Addition Game - Jump Summary: This maths addition game is a fun maths lesson that teaches the Doubles Addition Facts. These number facts are essential for efficient mental computations. This addition game aims to make the learning of these number facts a more enjoyable.

Doubles Maths Game

The aim of the indoor or outdoor game is to encourage 'automacy' in the recall of basic addition facts.

In my classrooms I do a lot of work on the need for efficiency in doing mental computations. We aim for, 'SEE IT, SAY IT'. This addition game offers heaps of opportunity to discuss 'efficient' number strategies. It also demonstrates that those who use efficient strategies will do better at the game.

Remember to play safe!

What to do:

1. Draw the addition game grid on concrete using chalk. Each square should be about 30cm by 30cm.

2. Two players stand with their feet in the large feet facing the addition game board.

3. A 'Caller' asks a question from one of the cards.

4. When a player has worked out the answer they must jump from their spot onto the correct answer. Do not move until you know the answer.

5. Players then rotate positions but the winner stays to compete with next player.

NB The object of this addition game is to have a bit of fun while you learn your addition facts. So make an effort to learn your 'Doubles' facts while you're standing in line.

Extension Idea - Calculators make for extra fun when playing this addition game as the children are amazed that most people can 'Beat the Calculator'!

NB I made this game in and put it on the Internet in about 2003. It has had a HUGE update since then. Feel free to grab it below! :-)
