Positive reinforcement is a proven technique for children. By saving the fun maths games for the end, you'll not only grab your child's attention for learning math, but you'll give him a reward that he'll enjoy and benefit from.

)Tj T*(Here is an example of a challenging, but fun game. Jot down on a piece of paper the number 1-20. The game is then to, using the same number no more than 5 times and using any standard mathematical function, try to have that written number as the result. For example, if trying to get the number 1 with 5, 7's, one may come up with1 = \(7 7\)/7 7/7. For 2, you may come up with \(7 7\)*7/7/7 = 2. Pretty simple at first, but it gets challenging later on. This and other fun maths games can be used to challenge children to use math in new and creative ways.

)Tj T*(There are other fun maths games that can help a child expand his mind or your mind. For example, a popular game called Sudoku is being played by many adults these days. The game is easy enough for kids, but can be challenging enough for adults to enjoy.
