Kari Pratt engages students in learning through math games

Kari Pratt, talent development math coach, created an engaging way for elementary students to practice math—Math Play. Students use playing cards and games provided to work on addition and subtraction. Since it’s important for students to continue to learn outside the classroom, games and cards were sent home.
Math games help students learn actively, develop a positive attitude about math, increase math confidence, develop problem-solving skills and master math skills. BankVista in Mankato donated 300 card decks to distribute to students
