The games and activities in this book focus on the development of fundamental maths skills through co-operative group work and the use of hands-on materials, as well as on enjoyment and having fun in order to build confidence and overcome maths anxiety. The photocopiable activities are designed to encourage students to work together and use and talk about mathematics and its language and share their understandings and knowledge. The activities are suitable for a wide range of mathematics and numeracy students, especially for the middle years, year 11 students studying practical mathematics subjects, and adult numeracy students. There are four sections: co-operative logic problems, dice games, calculator games and word games. Skill areas covered include: numbers and calculations, shape, location and direction and introductory algebra.
