    Math Graphing Games

    Mermaid's Treasure Graphing GameEveryone learns in their own unique way and timing.  Some of us learn by doing, others by observing, still others by listening, reading and so on.  Graphing is a cool way to present information in a visual way.  From newspapers to cookbooks, magazines to mail flyers, graphs are everywhere.  There are many different types of graphs - bar graphs, line graphs, pictographs, area graphs, pie graphs and XY graphs.  Graphing is not only fun but very important for children because it gives them a chance to learn that one thing can represent another.  Why is this so important?  Simple, in order to create adults who can stand strong in their faith and be independent thinkers for God's glory, they must first start out as children creating and honing these skills of interpreting information.  Graphing helps us to be able to assimilate data to make logical conclusions.  Plus, using graphs can be fun.

    We hope you enjoy using the games we created to help begin this process of reading and understanding information with our own children.  We hope your fun in learning goes off the charts!

    Cowboy Themed Math Counter Set

    Themed Counters - Cowboys Graphing Sheet

    Themed Counters - Cowboys w/Coloured Background

    Age:  Multi

    Focus:  Using a bar graph, Numbers from 0-100, Even & Odd Numbers, Math symbols: +  -    =  <  >

     

    Use these counter sets to help your kids learn about numerals, number order, odds and evens or use in conjunction with the provided math symbols.

    Use with one player and parental direction to put mixed up cards in order from 1-100 playing against a timer or to find all the numbers divisible by 2, 5, 10 etc..

    Use both sets provided for 2 player games - 1 set per player.  Play traditional games like Speed, War, Go Fish, Concentration or other 2 player flipping games such as:  Who has a higher number? Who has lower number?  Who has the lowest prime number?  Flip two cards at a time for:  Who has the highest sum?  Who has the lowest sum?  Who has the highest product?  Who has the lowest product? 

    As an added bonus, players can take cards from their winning piles (or even just a handful of cards) and graph the pictures on the cards using the graphing card provided.  How many bags of gold did you win?  How many sheriffs are in your pile? etc.  This requires players to pay attention to the details of the graphics and best of all, it's fun.  Laminate the graphing card and kids can use it with even a simple crayon and wipe it off when game play is complete.

    These sets can be used for quite a long time considering the numerals, symbols, pictures and two set play option.  Separating sets is easy too, just use the background to give them distinction and then store in a sandwich bag.
