10 year old sons homework this week is to think of and make a game that would help someone with their multiplications. We are totally stuck on ideas, we were thinking some kind of flash cards but not sure how to make that into a game. Any ideas folks??

how about making a game where its a ladder, whereby you can only get to move on if you answer the multipication question correct. The multipication question could be by flash cards?

how about somthing about odd's... i know its sorta gambling.. but can you not make a game, where your betting on stuff. like if you pop £1 down, and roll a 8 on 2 dice, you win £8, but if you stick £5 and roll a 5, then you get £25 back.. (monopoly money obviously...)..

it shows a good understanding of numbers..

maybe throw abit of probability onto it, with the odds of getting a double or something..

off the top of me head this?

That IMO is a fantastic shout about the game with the two dice. It would learn the kids right up to their 12 times tables.

Excellent idea and credit to the poster.

What about stand in a circle with a ball, the one holding the ball asks a questions (e.g. 4 x 9) and then throws the ball to someone else. That person has to answer the question and then the process is repeated.

Would get the kids interested and excited while helping them to learn their tables

Bingo but to work out the answers the teacher asks them a sum.

Could also do it the other way around

How about a simple game of snap! Use cards like 12x1, 6x2, 3x4, 4x1, 2x2, 3x3, 9x1 etc . The players place card one at a time and when two values match, call snap. Quick mental calculations are very good for developing the brain.

what about flash cards with numbers on them and you have to say 2 numbers that mulitply to make the number on the card. or it has a multiplication sum on it and you have to say the answer if you get it right then you win the card who ever has the most cards at the end wins?
