games are intended to help people become "BETTER THINKERS".
games are used for "FUN", "ENTERTAINMENT" & "EDUCATION" purposes.
games are "FAMILY-FRIENDLY". Children as young as 3 years old can play.
games help adults & seniors "CLEAN THE GEARS BETWEEN THEIR EARS"
games are "PLAY BASED LEARNING" games that help children have "FUN FUN FUN" while they "LEARN LEARN LEARN".
games never play the same way twice, they have "HIGH REPLAY" value.
HOW ARE GRID GAMES PLAYED
Almost all games are played using a similar concept.
The "ROLLING of DICE" provides the "OPPORTUNITIES" but the player must make what he or she feels is the best choice.
The square that is common to both a "VERTICAL" and a "HORIZONTAL" row of squares is called the "INTERSECTION SQUARE" and this is where the action occurs.
Each game uses this concept in a variety of ways depending on the game being played.
There is more than one way to play each game.
In some games players "COLLECT SHAPES", in some games players "COLLECT LETTERS", in some games players "COLLECT POINTS", in some games players "STRATEGICALLY PLACE" their markers in an attempt to win the game.

WHAT IS GRID
games is a resource (teaching-tool) designed to introduce and re-enforce visual graph concepts of vertical, horizontal and diagonal grid references.
games promotes problem-solving skills, visual discrimination, pattern exploration and the discovery and understanding of number sets sequencing patterning.
games use markers and value-markers (colored dice) to help students discover, discuss and internalize basic algebraic concepts using "Mental Math".
Markers and value-markers are a manageable, engaging and "FUN" approach that allows students, at all levels (even as young as 3 years of age) to develop and practice the numbering skills of mental calculation, estimation place value and "NUMBER-SENSE". All these skills are essential to building blocks of algebra.
offers many levels of challenge that are "SELF-CHECKING" and are appropriate for both individuals and co-operative mentoring groups.
encourages children to visualize 1,2, and 3 digit numbers and be successful in addition, subtraction and multiplication tasks requiring groupings.
Sequential "HANDS-ON" activities allow students to count, estimate group objects, build numbers and record information all of which are essential for successful computation of whole numbers, fractions and decimals.
games are accessible to players of all ages since the level of play is determined by their level of mathematical development.
games are wonderful for strengthening the often weak areas of mental math, problem solving and creating thinking skills.
