Games offer many opportunities to explore number, build strategies, and engage in problem solving. Shuffleboard dates back to 15th century England, and is often played on a long table or outdoor space.However, a simple variation of this game can be played in your home with items found around your house. As you and your family work to score 21 points, you can practice mental math, counting, and recording numbers, find unknown values (e.g., how many moreto get 21), or build problem solving strategies. Encourage your children to evaluate their attempts and consider what would happen if they modified their approach. Investigate how force and motion, friction, mass, and shape impact the game or model tools your children can use to researchthe questions they generate.You can adapt the level of problem solving and math counting based on the age of the child.
