Cowboy Themed Math Counters
Teach and Review with the Cowboy Themed Math Counters.
Use this counter set to help students learn about numerals, number order, odd and even numbers, or use it in conjunction with the provided math symbols.
With one set, instructors can direct the player to order the cards from 1-100 playing against a timer or finding all the numbers divisible by 2, 5, 10, etc.
Use Two sets of the Cowboy Themed Math Counters
With two sets, learners can play two-player games; there will be one set per player.
Play traditional games like Speed, War, Go Fish, Concentration, or other two-player flipping games such as:
Who has a higher number?
Who has the lower number?
Who has the lowest prime number?
Flip two cards at a time for:
Who has the highest sum?
Who has the lowest sum?
Who has the highest product?
Who has the lowest product?
As a bonus, players can take cards from their winning piles (or even just a handful of cards) and graph the pictures on the cards using our matching graphing card. For example, how many bags of gold did you win? How many sheriffs are in your pile? Players must pay attention to the details of the graphics. Laminate the graphing card included in the set to be able to use it more than once. Kids can use it with even a simple crayon and wipe it off when the gameplay is complete.
Considering the numerals, symbols, pictures, and two-set play options, teachers can use these sets for quite a long time. There is a matching counterpart set available with a white background. Play is easier and more fun, with each player having a unique duplicate set of playing cards. Separating the sets can be easy because their background distinguishes them from each other. Store the parts in a sandwich bag.
