If It’s Friday,
It Must Be Kakooma
If It’s Friday, It Must Be
Kakooma
True Confessions
• I’m a math nerd
• I believe that collaboration and discussion
are key to learning math
• I love math games
How it all started
Kakooma! My favorite math game
Kakooma
• Web-based OR iPad app: access on
laptop, SmartBoard, iPads
• Play alone or with partner OR whole class
• Choose operation and level of difficulty =
differentiation
• Motivates kids to learn basic facts
How it evolved
• Perfect Friday activity
• Students in random teams
• Play the game at the Smart Board
• Record the team’s time - a little friendly competition is
very engaging
• Great leadership for kids – they run the show!
(I sit back and relax)
And then….
Add MORE MATH
This is where the magic happens –
The Discussion!!!
Even more math
• Ask important questions:
– “Is there an outlier?”
– “How do you know?”
• Find the class mean
• Find the class median
• Record on the Scoreboard
LIVING Math
• Practicing addition and multiplication skills
• Line plots
• Vocabulary:
– Mean
– Median
– Range
– Outlier
Friendly
Competitions
