Multiplication Facts
Multiplication Tower of Math
Super Genius Multiplication I  Players compete to quickly match multiplication problems with products. Although the manufacturer recommendation is for 16 players, I find that the children enjoy it most in groups of 24. Perfect for building fluency.
Prime Climb Without a doubt the most popular board game with my students from 3rd grade through algebra. Students add, subtract, multiply and divide to be the first to reach 101. I remind students that they are not allowed to “count up” but need to calculate their next position. I often “think out loud” to introduce new concepts. For example, after rolling a 2 I may say “I can add 2 to 25 (my current position) to move to 27 OR I could multiply 25 by 2 and get to….humm, let’s see 25 X 2 is…” and let someone help me out. Great for learning math facts, the understanding order of operations, logic, and strategy. Will not promote math fluency because rapid recall is not important.
