Math Mat Challenge Game

I wanted to add another product for practicing math after writing about the Hundred Activity Mat on Tuesday.  The Math Mat Challenge Game is a fun, interactive floormat that challenges students to “listen to the equation, do the math, then step on the correct answer.”

Math can be a challenging subject for many students.  Additionally, the way one student learns (e.g. visual) may be different from the next (auditory).  The Math Mat Challenge Game offers a fun, highly interactive way to practice math for kinesthetic, auditory, and visual learners!

The Math Mat Challenge Game teaches the following up to the number 20:

  • Numbers
  • Counting
  • Addition
  • Subtraction

  • 3 games with 2 skill levels each
  • Measures 32″ D
  • Requires 3 AA batteries (not included)
  • Grades PreK+

Skill Development:

  • Math:
    • Use the Game as a warm-up to math class or math homework.  Using students’ whole body helps them think, learn, and remember better.
  • Gross motor:
    • Listen to the question from the mat, process, and respond by tapping toes on the correct answer.
    • As students respond, they learn how to shift their weight, balance, and coordinate their movements to tap on the desired answer.  Learning math is easier if the whole body is involved.
  • Basic concepts:
    • As students play together, they practice following instructions, taking turns, and patience.  These basic social skills are imperative in everyday life!
