Inside: A fun, easy play number facts game with Uno cards. Great for revising addition and multiplication facts.
So much of mastering basic math facts comes down to revision. Making that revision fun and engaging has always been important to me – as both a teacher and a parent. Which is exactly what led us to playing this simple math game – we call it Uno Flip!
Uno Flip is great for children learning about addition in the early elementary grades. It can also be played with older children revising multiplication facts.
How to Play Uno Flip
You will need:
- The number cards from a pack of Uno cards
- Post-it notes
- Paper and pen/pencil or our printable Uno Flip record sheet
Recommended age: 5+ years
1. Write a + symbol onto a post-it note and an = symbol on a post-it note and place on the table face up to form an addition equation, leaving room for the Uno cards to sit between the symbols.
2. Divide your Uno number cards into two piles and place piles as shown in the photo above.
3. Flip over one card from each pile and place it into the addition equation.
For mental maths, say the answer out loud as quickly as you can.
To practise writing equations, write the addition sentence, including the answer, onto your sheet of paper or record your answer on our printable record sheet (download instructions can be found at the bottom of this post).
4. Continue to flip over two cards at a time and say or record each answer as above.
To revise times tables with Uno flip, swap the addition symbol for a multiplication symbol. Proceed as per the mental math or written equation examples above.
Hints & Tips:
- Adjust the difficulty level of the game by limiting the Uno cards to those containing higher or lower number values.
- Add a level of competitiveness to the game by playing with two players competing to see who can answer to the problem first.
- Don’t have Uno cards? You could also play with a pair of dice.
