<p>Here is a problem solving puzzle in the form of a Diamond-shaped grid of squares, each square houses a number and the four sides of the Diamond should sum to the same 'magic' total.</p>
<p>The challenge is for the children to use their calculation and problem solving skills to complete the Diamonds by filling in the missing numbers.</p>

<p>To play the game, the boards should be cut out and laminated. Children then write on them with a whiteboard pen. The players also need a set of 0-9 digit cards between them.</p>

Sized to suit the <a href="http://www.mathsticks.com/node/4">Place Value Ladder Boards</a>.</p>
<p>Play the usual Ladder Games with them or let the children select 10 digit cards at random from a face-down pile... then challenge them to put the cards in order, smallest to largest as quickly as possible.</p>

<p><img width="266" height="180" align="left" src="/userfiles/War-fractions-decimals.jpg" alt="maths game - fractions and decimals" />It's over twenty-years since I first played this maths game with Primary-age children... but that doesn't stop it being an excellent way for children to develop their understanding of fractions and decimals.</p>
<p>You will need two copies of the cards cut from the downloadable<span style="color: rgb(255, 102, 0);">*</span> file. That's 48 cards in total.</p>

<p class="rteleft"><strong><img height="180" align="left" width="266" alt="Gattegno place value chart" src="/userfiles/gattegnoImg.jpg" />The Gattegno (or Place Value) Chart</strong> is a simple tool to help children appreciate the patterns in our counting structure. For example, the identical pattern evident when counting in 1’s, 10’s, 100’s, 1000’s... or greater</p>
<p>To familiarise young children with the Gattegno Chart ask them to:</p>

http://mathsticks.com/resource/1006/decimal-bingo-game
<p><strong><img width="245" height="166" align="left" alt="Decimal numbers bingo game" src="/userfiles/DecimalBingo-Img.jpg" />It's easy for bingo-type games to overtake mathematics... so I tend to avoid them! However, there are exceptions. </strong>This one gives children plenty of practice adding decimals and doesn't feel like it relies too much on chance. The children can use a host of mental math strategies while playing (it's not just a 'hunt and cover' game) and the whole thing feels more exciting and logical than most bingo/maths games.</p>
