Fun, Games and Math
What is your opinion of math? Math, you say? What do I care about math? I had to take it in school, but I am beyond that now. Math no longer applies to my life. On the other side of the coin, there are those that find math to be exciting, exhilarating, and the time of their lives. It does apply to their lives and they can’t wait to use it. This second opinion, however, is the minority. Most people find that math is work. It is confusing, complicated and totally unnecessary. Is this you? The problem with this kind of thinking is that it isn’t true. Math is necessary, from the simplest addition and subtraction to more difficult geometry and physics. Math applies to life and we cannot live without it.
So, with that established, where do we go from here? If math is dull, boring and tedious, how can it matter? Well, the truth is, it doesn’t have to be. Math can be fun, exciting and something to look forward to. How? How can math possibly be fun? Well, have you ever played a game? Sure, you have. Was it fun? Of course it was. Would you ever like to play another game again? If the answer is, “Yes”, then I have hope for you when it comes to math. There are games out there that are just as much fun and teach you all you need to know to succeed in math. Have you ever played Dominoes or Hangman? Have you ever played cards or board games? I know a way to adapt these well-known games to math, and I know a great many more games that do the same thing. You will find yourself having so much fun that you will wonder where the time has gone.
For games that not only will teach you to succeed in math, but will have you having so much fun that you don’t even realize that you are learning, go to:
