Polyominoes: Times is a collection of games which give students a strong mathematical foundation by helping them to understand the concepts of skip counting and multiplication and to learn their 2 to 10 times tables.
There are two Game Board options to practise each of the times tables from 2 to 10.
- The Skip Counting Game Boards are ideal for students who are just starting to work with a particular times table. They allow students to find their answers by skip counting across the board.
- The Advanced Game Boards are a fantastic way for students to practise their times tables once they have begun memorising them.
Also included in the collection are instructions for four different games that can be played with each of the boards; Times: Dominoes, Times: Triominoes, Times: Tetrominoes and Times: Pentominoes.
This means that with one purchase, you will have access to 72 variations of times tables games!
