tri-FACTa Addition and Subtraction Game by Learning Resources

tri-FACTa. Interesting name I thought. My husband though ate it up. You see, he is a Math teacher that works with kids that need a little extra help on Math. So, we got it so he could give it a try. Here is what he has to say:

At first the kids groaned: Ugh, another Math game. A lot of Math games are so rigorous, or the rules are hard to follow, or if the student is behind on Math…well, how can they compete? In tri-FACTa everyone has a chance! The game is well made, so I think we’ll be getting a lot of use out of it! It was nice to have a different way to practice Fact Families. No more “House Model” or “Fact Book” projects. This game actually makes the kids think, too. Should they play three cards now or try to complete 2 fact families the next 2 turns? Fun and educational.

The next time the kids groaned was when I boxed it back up and put it away. They had mastered the unit on Fact Families and were ready for something more advanced!

Overall: 5 Stars. Educational and Fun.

Description:
Build math-fact fluency like never before. Familiar triangle format provides a visual cue, while game play makes addition and subtraction fun. Includes triangle game board, 100 cards (facts up to 20) and 4 trays. For 2-4 players. Game board measures 10”. Grades 1+.

Make addition and subtraction 3 times more fun with Tri-FACTa from Learning Resources! Race to use up your number cards by creating fact families in this fun-for-the-whole-family board game for ages 6 and up.

Tri-FACTa builds math-fact fluency through game play – and it’s easy!

  • Set the game board in the center of the play area. Shuffle the cards and place them face down around the board.
  • Each player takes 5 cards and places them in his or her tray.
  • The first player who can make a fact family out of three of their cards goes first, placing those cards on the board.
  • Play continues, with each player placing 2 or 3 new cards on the board to make true fact families. If a player cannot make a fact family with the cards in his or her hand, he draws a new card. If that card enables him to play, he may. If not, his turn is skipped. Wild cards can be played as any number.
  • The first player to play all of his or her cards and yell “Tri-FACTa” wins the game!
