More Math Games & Activities from Around the World by Claudia
Zaslavsky - Math, history, art, and world cultures come together in this
delightful book for kids, even for those who find traditional math lessons
boring. More than 70 games, puzzles, and projects encourage kids to hone their
math skills as they calculate, measure, and solve problems.
The games span the globe, and many have been played for thousands of years, such
as three-in-a-row games like Achi from Ghana or the forbidden game of Jirig from
Mongolia. Also included are imaginative board games like Lambs and Tigers from
India and the Little Goat Game from Sudan, or bead and string puzzles from
China, and M+bius strip puzzles from Germany.
Through compelling math play, children will gain confidence and have fun as they
learn about the different ways people around the world measure, count, and use
patterns and symmetry in their everyday lives.
