Math Game Monday ~ Four-in-a-Row Mental Math Game


Merry Monday to each of you!

It's time for another middle school math game here on the blog.

This is a product I created called Four-in-a-Row Mental Math.  It can be used as a game for whole-group time or as a center....or even in small-group tutoring sessions.


This game is played like Bingo, only with 4 in a row instead of 5.

As clues are called out, the students perform all math calculations in their heads {if at all possible}. This process exercises students' abilities to perform mental math calculations and recall more than one number at a time. 

It's a quick and easy math game that hits on many basic skills from all strands. 

I've created 30 completely different boards to accommodate an entire class playing at the same time. It would also be perfect as a math station/center with a few students playing a 1 student calling out the clues.

There are 32 clue cards included.

While more 4th and 5th Grade CCSS are addressed in this math game/center, the amount and quality of review and remediation available for Grades 6 - 8 is tremendous.

Keep those basic skills and mental math skills sharp!! 

Common Core Alignment:
4.G.2, 4.NBT.1,3-5;
5.G.3, 5.NBT.2,4;
6.NS.6a,7;
7.G.2 

All game boards and clue cards are in black to save on ink costs. However, this would look great on colored card stock.


Here's a sample of the game boards and 1 page of clue cards.

Thanks so much and I hope you find this a fun and valuable tool for your students!  Mine love it!


Enjoy :)
