I think that presenting a mathematics concept in the form of a game is a great way to engage kids in the topic. Students seemed excited about learning a new game—they wanted to try out playing the game with their peers. 2. I believe that we made a good start at achieving the objective, however I think that students need a bit more practice at recognizing that there are ways to group objects in a way that lets them count them more efficiently.
