Improve Your Child's Math Skills with Playing Cards

Children enjoy card games for the challenge and competitive nature. Practicing math skills using card games is great for students. It's fun, engaging, and educational. These math-card games will have your child wanting to practice math more often.

Face Cards

When playing these card games, there are several ways to count face cards. You may remove them completely. Change them so that the Jack equals 11, the Queen equals 12, and the King equals 12. The Ace should always equal 1. This option is not difficult, and your child will learn the rules quickly. Alternatively, each face card, other than the ace, equal 10. Explain the guidelines clearly to your child before game play.

Addition War or Multiplication War

War can be played to improve your child's multiplication or addition skills. This game is suitable for 2 to 3 people. It’s the same as the regular war card game, except addition or multiplication are incorporated, depending your child’s grade level. To play, deal the cards evenly to all players. Players must not shuffle or look at the cards. All players lay a card down at the same time. The first person to shout out the sum or the product wins the cards. The player with the most cards at the end of the session or the first to win all the cards is the winner!
