Math Memory Games, Free Printables

Posted by Jeff Bogle on

As a parent, I often find that turning difficult subjects like math into fun and easy games can be a clever and carefree way to reinforce school lessons at home and make learning extremely enjoyable for my two daughters. This classic memory-style math game encourages kids to solve math problems and remember answers as they flip and turn to find the matches.

After her homework is finished, my youngest daughter plays this math memory game (using grade level math problems that correspond with what she’s currently studying in school) at the kitchen table while I prepare dinner. I believe she enjoys math class more during the day because of the extra fun she has at home at night.

How To Set Up and Play This Math Memory Game

 

Print and cut out all the math memory equation and answer cards.

*Consider adding some pizzazz to this game by using a fanciful card stock, construction or craft/scrap-booking paper that is plain or a solid light color on one side and patterned on the other. Of course, printing on white copy paper will also work.

Arrange the memory cards face down in a grid. Have your child flip over two cards per turn, with the instruction to focus and remember the equations/answers they see and the locations of each. Keep playing until all the problems are solved and every match is located!
