5th Grade Games

Games are an integral part of the Everyday Mathematics curriculum. They provide a fun way for students to build strong arithmetic skills and fact power, including mental math and computation skills with whole numbers, fractions, and decimals. Below you can find a list of resources that provide more information on games in the Everyday Mathematics curriculum.

The Role of Games in Everyday Mathematics

This page provides information on how games are used as a way to augment, not replace, activities that focus on rote practice of specific skills and facts, such the Mental Math and Reflexes exercises that begin every Everyday Mathematics lesson.
