Math – Use the Math Mat Challenge Game as a warm-up to math class or math homework. Using students’ whole body helps them think, learn, and remember.

Gross Motor – Listen to the question from the mat, process, and respond by toe tapping on the correct answer. As students respond, they learn how to shift their weight, balance, and coordinate their movements to tap on the desired answer. Learning the abstract subject of math is helped by getting your body involved. Combines visual, auditory, and kinesthetic learning!

Basic Concepts – As students play together, they practice following directions, taking turns, and patience. These are basic concepts in social interaction that reach far beyond the parameters of the game.

      Simply educational & fun

      Comments about Learning Resources Math Mat Challenge™ Game:

      I purchased this item for my grandson who is four years old. We were very excited when we open the box and everything was ready to play except for batteries. Once we put batteries in he was able to play the game without any instructions. The volume was easy to hear. He loved running around stepping on the correct answer. He loved the question mark, it allowed him to have the question repeated. This is an an excellent resource to enhance learning. When it is fun they enjoy it more. I will certainly recommend this to everyone in my circle that have children or grandchildren. He could play alone or with someone else.

          Comments about Learning Resources Math Mat Challenge™ Game:

          I originally went to the Learning Resources website to look at the cash register for my 3 year old granddaugter and saw the Math Mat Challenge Game. After reading the reviews, I ended up buying not only the cash register but 2 of the Math Mats for grandsons. One grandson is 6 and in Kindergarten and the other is 4 1/2 and in preschool. The boys are cousins and opened the gifts at different Christmas gatherings, but their reactions were similar. Once they were told what kind of game it was and what was involved, they wanted to play it immediately. Both love games, math and jumping, so it was a natural! Even with the difference in ages, the Math Mat was fun for each of them due to the different games and levels of play. Each grandson was able to play it by himself but it was also fun for older siblings and adults to play with them if they needed help. I like that they are learning and improving their math skills but having fun and being active at the same time.

            I love this game as do my students. It involves so many different skills, listening, following directions, number sense, in a fun activity.
