Family Math - Middle School

E11 has been taking a class at co-op called Math Games and Puzzles. He and about 4 other kids work on activities from Family Math- The Middle School Years. He loves it!

This is also where I pulled the linear graphing activities for our family graphing day. There's a lot of algebraic thinking in this volume which is great for my 6th grader.

In class a few weeks ago, they played this tax collector game. It was hard to win if you weren't the tax collector that is for sure.
If you aren't familiar with Family Math at any of the levels, I encourage you to find a copy. There are a lot of games and activities in there that make math fun and you can do them in groups or individually. Lots of great discussions.
