I’ve been thinking about the excitement that STEM generates in the classroom. So many times students are so excited about STEM, but are held back by their math skills. Refining/Reteaching/Reviewing these math skills helps students develop a better number sense so that it can be used as a problem solving strategy.
In thinking back to my own classroom, I was shocked to find out that my 4th graders barely knew their times tables. Such a boring, but necessary skill. So, we started playing math games to harness and expand their number sense and, among other skills, times tables.
So, this series is dedicated to some really cool math games that will help sharpen your students’ STEM skills! Join me!
