But if I do this, then you’ll do this other thing, and then this will be the result….” Use this technique to help your child consider what might happen beyond the move they are making now, to plan ahead, and create new strategies for successful game playing.Because planning for outcomes is a huge part of thinking critically and solving problems!

Sometimes, when you make a move in a game, it’s totally expected - it’s what every other player would have done in the same situation.

Other times, you make a decision to do something different, maybe unexpected, because you think it will pay off in the end.

Bottom line: It'll need some scaffolding, but for students ready for the subject matter it's a great -- if sobering -- way to illustrate to students the daily realities and struggles of poverty in America.

In previous blogs we’ve talked about the many things you can learn from games (read those here), but at this moment I think it’s really useful to stress a larger point, which is that game really is a math game.

= null && cmg_gdpr_check=="true") { if(cmg_gdpr_all_check == null && cmg_gdpr_first_check == null && cmg_gdpr_reject_check == null) else if(cmg_gdpr_first_check !

As you explain your moves, your kids will learn more advanced ways of approaching the game.

As your kids explain their moves to you, you get to understand how they are thinking, and maybe even learn a tactic you might not have thought of yourself! As you are deciding your next move, speak your thinking process out loud: “If I do this, and then you do that, then I think this will happen….

“But wait,” you might be thinking, “in the games we play we don’t keep score, or even count, so where is the math?

” The math I’m talking about isn’t necessarily about numbers, or scores, or counting.
