Equate: The Equation Thinking Game

by on Mar.30, 2010, under Games, Math

Equate looks a bit like Scrabble–for aspiring mathematicians, that is. Designed by a real mathematician, it works like this: You put down tiles on a board and make points by correctly completing simple equations. Your nine tiles include both numbers and mathematical symbols; you can add on to previous plays both vertically and horizontally. Learn simple stuff (like what division is) and more sophisticated ideas (like the order of precedence among arithmetic operations).
Have fun creating equations crossword-style while honing math skills from simple addition to fractions and algebraic logic. Included are a laminated board; 190 tiles including whole numbers, fractions, the 4 basic operations symbols, and equal symbols; a 23-page rules booklet with math review; and 4 racks. 2 to 4 players.
