Math Game Monday

I'm starting something new this week...

I have so many Math Games to share with you all, that instead of putting together a pack, I decided that I would introduce a new game to my blogging buddies every Monday. All games will require very little equipment. Now here's the tricky part, I will post it on Monday (Australian time) which is Sunday (US time) meaning everyone has a new Math game to try that week. Are you excited yet???

Well, you should be, because this very first game is my ABSOLUTE favourite! I think I teach it to the kids on the first day of school! 

It is called Triangular Cards, as there are three players, sitting in a triangle and you require, you guessed it a deck of cards! I love this game so much because each player in the game, even the dealer, has Math to do. The dealer uses addition and automatic facts, while the other two players use subtraction, automatic facts and counting on or back to solve the question. Click on the link below to download and print the pdf instructions - ready for use straight away!
