Addition - Noughts & Crosses
It wasn't a great stretch to take the Times Tables Noughts and Crosses maths game we developed a few weeks ago, and turn it into an Addition activity. A number of people requested it to use with older children who still need plenty of practice with addition... so here it is!
Just like last time, the downloadable pdf file (below) consists of two board games: a traditional 3 by 3 board, and an 'extended' 4 by 4 board. The file also includes two sets of 28 addition problems as playing tokens, these range from 3+1, 3+2, 3+3 ... to .. 9+2, 9+3, 9+4.
The boards feature full instructions of how to play.
Clearly, the game can be further adapted... so post a comment to tell us how this worked for you, or to share any further ideas of how it can be used with other mathematical concepts.
