What's the math in these games?
Providing children instruction focused on the shape’s defining attributes—such as number and length of sides—helps them create more accurate understandings. The shapes on the shape cards are intentionally set at various angles to give children experience with shapes whose bases are not horizontally aligned. Shape Card games are a fun way to practice numeral recognition, logic, strategy, and classification. Children may also develop important executive function skills such as rule shifting, working memory, and paying attention to multiple attributes (such as shape, number, and color).
