- Cognitive Thinking & Problem Solving
- Flip a card.
- Roll a 6-sided dice. That is now your target number.
- Create an equation with the numbers on the card using any operation (+ - x ÷) to equal your target number. You can only use each number once.
- Lower grades can play by using 2 or 3 numbers while upper grades have to use all 4 numbers.
Example: Your card says 5 2 7 4 and you roll a 3.
7 - 5 = 2, 2 ÷ 2 = 1, 4 -1 = 3

THE CREATOR OF TANG MATH GAMES
The Math Powerpack was created by Harvard professor and world-renowned author, Greg Tang. With over 4,000 workshops and conferences, Greg has helped transform the way teachers and students understand and enjoy math.
Greg Tang’s “Less Is More” approach focuses on how to help students think about the numbers in a smarter way.
He even hosted a TedTalk about finding simple solutions to seemingly complicated math problems and enjoying it.

teachers, parents & kids LOVE KAKOOMA!
This is the best money I've spent on my classroom in a long time! I just wanted to say THANK YOU so much for making math come alive for our students...and teachers. Everyone has a renewed spirit for learning thanks to your energy.
I brought the Greg Tang kit home to try out with my second grader. We have been playing for the past TWO hours!
I used the kit over the summer to play math games with some students and they loved it! Even the reluctant ones were engaged and having fun. Also, it's great that I can differentiate the games because there are multiple levels included.
