Number Jumble: Game Play Strategies
This is a great game for teaching students to find patterns with numbers. Decide whether you want students to work with whole numbers or in decimals, then refresh students’ memories of the multiplication table. Allow students to work collaboratively or alone with the Number Jumble game. Then begin a discussion as to whether they see any patterns in the multiplication table. Discuss why patterns happen in math and how discovering the patterns can help students with math (and with the game)!
