They can be used to introduce math topics and for practice and review, with either the whole class or in small groups with 2 to 4 players for each game. Basically, the games provide an alternative method for generating problems while motivating students, with much practice involved. for each game, the concept, set up, rules of play, scoring method, points needed to win, and examples are given, and for most games, possible variations are indicated.
