I am at the Kansas City Math Technology Expo this weekend doing two talks.

Today’s talk was Playing to Learn Math? I gave this at TexMATYC in the spring, but just updated it to add some non-digital types of play that you can use in the classroom. There are five great math games mentioned in this presentation. Direct links to these games are below:

- NLVM Circle Puzzles (there are actually several Circle games on this page)
- Line Gem
- Factortris
- Flower Power (also, I quite like Ice Ice Maybe, a game about estimation)
- Waker
- Machinarium (this wasn’t in the presentation, but boy is it good for logic & critical thinking)
- Playing with Sequences (a non-digital game for the classroom)
