Math + Game = Fun

Did you know that many games use mathematics? We use dice, add and subtract points, and often move pieces in specific ways, dictated by mathematics. The mathematical equations of many games also tell us how the game ends; for example, the winner might be the first player to get a total of 500 points, or might be the person to match up the most cards in pairs.

Try the following games and experiments to see just how much fun math can be! And, next time you play a game, study the rules to see if mathematics decides how you win.
