Maths Rugby

Today Room 8 were introduced to one of the games that would soon become a group tumble task.  The game was called Maths Rugby.  Miss Kyla showed us how to play it simply by turning over a card and 'making 20'.  Then we had to think of other ways to play the game.  Some ideas we came up with included:

  • Make 50, 100 or 1000!
  • Times the card by a chosen number
  • Making wholes and tenths after flipping over two cards
  • Multiplying two cards that have been flipped over
  • Taking away the smallest number from the biggest number when two cards are flipped over
  • Doubles
  • Halves
  • Adding two cards together
We had so much fun, and can't wait to play this as part of our tumble times!  Can you think of any more ways to play maths rugby?
