Free printable math games
This is a game for 2 players that gets your students practising the skill of estimation. You only need a calculator, 2 x 10 sided dice and a copy of the playing board.
Transformation puzzles help your students develop the idea that things can move around by reflecting (flipping), translating (sliding) and rotating (turning). This helps kids to realize that by doing these movements it doesn’t change the size or shape of the thing.
Included are 5 different puzzles that include various irregular figures: frog, toy, present, fish and tree. When your students have created their transformation puzzles they swap with a partner and try to work out the sequence of movement. They then compare with the original to see how they are the same and how they are different.
2D shape dominoes
Here I share with you a 2D shape domino game that will help your students to learn the names of the shapes. The dominoes have a mixture of the various 2D shape pictures as well as properties of 2D shapes.
You could use the dominoes in the usual way, but you could also cut apart each of the pieces to make a matching game. Just print them on thick card and cut apart each piece separately and spread them out face down in the middle. Players turn over 2 cards at a time to try and find 2 that match. If they match they keep them. The player with the most cards at the end is the winner.
