Is your child bored in math class? Does your child struggle with math?
Give them Creature Quest and they’ll discover how negative numbers work – while having fun. Because there’s no such thing as a “math person”!
– Kids internalize how the number line works and strengthen their mathematical and spatial skills
– Kids won’t know or care that they’re learning, they’re only playing for fun
The best way for kids to learn anything is through play. Research shows that kids want to play a game well because they are motivated to win. To win, they must teach themselves how to play successfully. And when that win demands math skills they learn them simultaneously.
Box contains: 50 cards, game board, pawns, dice, & short directions Ages 6 & up
Kids learn very quickly how negative numbers work when they get to play with them in the context of a game, because they see how to use them to get to their goal. Without drills or lectures, kids internalize negative number sense while having fun. Kids won’t realize it, but while they’re playing, they’re learning the fundamentals of positive and negative numbers. And what they learn today will be crucial to whether they excel or struggle tomorrow.
Having kids play a simple game using negative numbers now helps them internalize the concept so that by the time they encounter them in a math class, they’re primed to understand them (no pun intended). Negative numbers represent students’ first experience with abstract math – and they’re essential for high school level math. Give your kid a head start by introducing them with Creature Quest today.
