I have recently started a math club at my school to help kids see that math can be fun, interesting and challenging. It frustrates me when I see so many students convinced that they are not good at math or that they hate it. I was able to find the Game of 24 in a closet at the school, but I would like to have a variety of games for this program. There were many seventh and eighth graders coming to math club at first, but they are getting tired of playing the same game, so attendance is now lacking. Looking through a number of magazines, I have come across a number of math games that would be great for the program. There are a number of students with different ability levels staying after school with me, so I would like games that could be played by all. My goal with the program is to begin turning students' impressions of math around. I want them to have positive experiences and a "can-do" attitude in math. There are approximately 15 students coming to math club currently, but I am hoping to expand it to include sixth grade and more seventh and eighth graders. I would also like to use many of the games during my regular classes for review and a fun learning activity. I have three classes with approximately 32 eighth graders in each class. For next year, I am working on having three different math clubs, one for each grade in the school. Some of the games I would like are Brain Quest (grades 6&7), Slugger, Equate Original Classroom Set, Equate Advanced Tiles, Equate Activity notebooks, Xactika, Smath, Muggins-Oops, Mastermind, Trilemma, Math Magic, Math Chase (Grades 6-9), Bingo and Additional Cards, Quizmo Intermediate Math Game Series, Travel Math, Math Around the School, 52 Game Chest, Conceptual Bingo-Set of Four, Chekker Math, Menu Math, Blokus, Super Clerk, Bedmas, Number Cruncher and Numero. I have broken the proposal down into 3 parts. Even help with one portion would be greatly appreciated by myself and the students.
