Family Games Nights boost math skills

Jul 15, 2023 | Saskatoon

We host a Free Family Game Night every month. 
Kids learn through play.
Plus, it's a great way to invite people into our centre in a non-stressful way. 
You do not need to be a Mathnasium student to attend our game nights, but they are best suited for students grades 2-8 and their parents. 

"Sitting down and playing numbers-based board games like chutes and ladders with your young children could help improve their skills in math, a recent review of nearly 20 studies over more than two decades suggests."


"Board games enhance mathematical abilities for young children," Jaime Balladares of Pontificia Universidad Catolica de Chile in Santiago, Chile, who served as the study's lead author, said in a news release.


Children's math skills improved "significantly" in 52 per cent of these tasks after a session, the researchers said, while 32 per cent of participants who played a numbers-based game had better results than those who did not take part in one.
