# Numbers Battle

Do you know the numbers well? Do you know how to use the greater and less than symbols?

Choose your hero and participate in a fun battle.

Only your math skills can lead you to victory!

### Teacher's tips

Level of education: Elementary School

Subject: Math

Age: 07 to 10 years

Promote a learning battle with this game where children will put into practice knowledge of MAJOR and MINOR, in addition to problem solving skills involving the four operations.

According to the age and level of the children, the game presents a challenge, which will be graded and differentiated by the degree of difficulty. [FIM-DICA]

### Learner outcomes

Work with the four fundamental operations;

Develop estimation processes, mental calculation and multiplication tables;

Solve mathematical problems involving the four operations;

Exercise logical reasoning, finding the result of operations;

Fix the learning of the concepts “major” and “minor”;

Establish measurement relationships, estimating the possible results of operations;

Fix knowledge acquired in the classroom;

### Teachers' goals

Detect students' difficulties in learning the 4 (four) fundamental operations of mathematics: addition, subtraction, multiplication and division;

Reinforce content worked in the classroom;

Stimulate the taste for Mathematics, through playful and pleasurable activities;

Expand the class calculation procedures from the four operations;

Stimulate the exchange of knowledge, socialization and interaction among students;

### Suggestions of approaches for the teacher

(Suggestion 1) Divide the class into pairs for this game, where partners should exchange ideas to solve each proposed problem. It is important to highlight what each student knows and what they need to learn, so that the exchange of knowledge between them advances in learning.

(Suggestion 2) For younger children, choose the easiest level where they will only work with the concepts of greater and lesser from numbers, without having to find the results of operations.

(Suggestion 3) Record the game as follows: ask students to write down all the numbers that appear in the moves. Use them in proposals in the classroom or at home, suggestions:

Arrange the numbers in ascending order.

Sort the numbers in descending order.

Write the predecessor and successor of the numbers.

Propose sums that allow for the analysis of regularities in numerical sequences: +2, +5, +10, +100.

Separate even and odd numbers.

(Suggestion 4) For older children, choose the most difficult level where the same proposal is made, but the student must solve the operation to find which is the largest and smallest number.

When working in pairs, it is important for the children to exchange ideas to find the results of the operations.

As a record, propose that the children write down the operations and the results obtained. In the classroom, the pairs should exchange sheets to check each result found by their colleagues.

It is also interesting to divide the class into two groups and promote a battle, launching each of the operations noted by the children.

Also use this record to send homework!

(Suggestion 5) Present problems to the class, discussing with them the possible solutions and recording your ideas on the board. Soon after, if you find it necessary, present the solutions, comparing with what they thought. Ask them to explain their strategies, solving them collectively on the board or in their notebooks.

(Suggestion 6) MARKET: Simulate with the students a market with fake money. Divide students into two groups, salespeople and customers.

(Suggestion7) ROLLING DICE: Produce two dice or bring them to class ready-made. Roll the dice and with the numbers that come out write an operation on the board. You can, for example, say that you are going to start with addition operations, so the numbers that come out will be added together. Then you can move on to the following operations. The answers can be written in the notebook and checked later, as is done in a traditional dictation.

(Suggestion 8) BINGO. Place chips with operations are placed inside a bag. Then pull out an operation and talk to the players. Players resolve the operation by obtaining the result that will be on some of the cards. Whoever has the result marks it with a marker.

(Suggestion 9) Talk to students about everyday situations involving calculations with addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. Orient the class to a research work that aims to find numerical data in newspapers and magazines that allow the class to work with mental calculation, with mathematical operations, data that allow the discussion of mathematical ideas. After the survey, promote a moment of socialization and presentation of the works.

### More about the content

Since the early years of elementary school, concepts and problem situations involving the four fundamental operations are worked on in Mathematics: addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. These subjects are the basis for solving any mathematical problem. However, many times, these operations are not assimilated and understood satisfactorily by the students, and many of them are promoted to subsequent grades without acquiring mastery of the prerequisites, in order to face the next stages of teaching and learning.

In the current educational context, every moment new challenges arise. As technology advances, education needs to follow this process. The use of didactic games as a strategy in teaching mathematics has been gaining ground, winning over students and solving some of these difficulties and gaps in the teaching-learning process.
