Synopsis

Deck Ahoy! Primary Mathematics Activities and Games Using Just a Deck of Cards by Janis Abbott

Deck Ahoy! contains over 100 activities and games to teach primary maths skills with a deck of cards. Topics covered are not only the main operations - addition, subtraction, multiplication and division - but also fractions, statistics, time, ratios, squares and cubes and graphs. The ideas are great for homework as there are no worksheets needed (or marking to do!) and the whole family can get involved, any where any time.

Reviews

In 'Deck Ahoy', Mrs Abbott has created a marvellous resource for any school, parent, pupil or anyone who loves maths. This book is not only a valuable tool in a teacher's box of tricks, it is fun, easy to read and accessible to everyone. What shines through is that is has been designed, tested and enthused over by a skilled practitioner. As a headteacher, I was lucky enough to see all of this in action at our little school in a Derbyshire village - but the activities in this treasure trove of maths ideas have now been proven in large city schools as well. The ultimate joy of this fantastic work is that every child can have their own deck of cards for less than a pound and it illustrates just how much you can achieve without spending a fortune - simplicity is the key! (Peter Johnston, Head Teacher at two Derbyshire schools) Who would have thought such a simple thing as a deck of cards could offer so many learning opportunities? Teachers - this would be a brilliant way to encourage your pupils to learn by trying out some of the ideas at home and involving their families too. There are more than 100 activities and games to teach primary maths skills, covering addition, subtraction, multiplication and division as well as fractions, statistics, time, ratios, squares and cubes and graphs, all geared perfectly to the KS2 curriculum. Throughout the book, clear explanations of the learning are given. Please note that, although I have put this book under KS2, it is actually contains activities aimed at 5-11 year olds, and is in sections for KS1, lower KS2 and upper KS2. Written with great enthusiasm, this is a stimulating book which will encourage teachers to take a fresh look at a very simple and inexpensive resource. Simple and highly effective!
