A set of standard cards is a versatile and inexpensive tool that you can use for many different math activities.

## Multiplication Games with a Set of Standard Cards

Here are some simple ideas for effectively learning how to use a set of standard cards for multiplication games.

### Multiplication War Game

This is a classic card game that can be adapted for multiplication practice. The goal is to win all the cards by having the highest product in each round.

How to play:

• Shuffle the cards and deal them evenly among the players. Each player keeps their cards face down in a pile.
• At the same time, each player flips over two cards from their pile and places them face up on the table.
• Each player multiplies the values of their two cards and announces their product out loud.
• The player with the highest product wins all the cards on the table and adds them to their own pile.
• If there is a tie, the players who tied flip over two more cards each and multiply them. The player with the highest product wins all the cards on the table.

The game continues until one player has all the cards or until a time limit is reached.
