From Card Games to Educational Games

If you notice a lot of students are playing with cards and dice, there are a few ways to handle the situation. You could take them away but since the cards are in a cabinet, I am under the impression it is a routine the teacher has in place. You can also leave a note for the teacher but it seems like it is happening too often that the note does not seem to have an impact. I have a mathematical background and therefore would have the students play math games with the cards and dice. For example, have the students break off into groups, one student will roll the dice and take a card, let's say they roll a six and their card is a two of diamonds, they then multiple those numbers together to get a twelve. The students with the highest number wins their group. Every group winner will then form another group and compete for the highest number and so on. This way they can see math in new ways, this will get them engaged in learning, and it will put their cards and dice to an educational use.
