More Math! Resources: Final Target game by ThinkFun
Calling all 5th and 6th grade math teachers! Are you ready to put your students’ math skills to the test? Check out this great new math game developed by 2019 Festival presenter ThinkFun (opens new window)! The game, Final Target, is perfect for improving math fluency skills and is ideal for teaching order of operations.
The object of the game is to use the scoring numbers given to create a mathematical expression that hits the target number. The game gets trickier as the player moves down to the next line where he/she is presented with different target number to hit and will need to change out one of the scoring numbers to hit it without knowing which number to take out.
