March 5: 5th Annual Math Night

Every year our school hosts a math night for families. Each grade level plans a different math activity for kids and parents to do together. It's a fun night even though it means I have to stay at school until after seven. This year 5th grade did a game called "Cover Up". To play the game you roll two dice. You can add, subtract, multiply, divide, or combine the digits to get a number on the board. The goal is to cover more numbers than your opponent. It doesn't sound too hard at first, but there are only so many combinations that will equal certain numbers, and it gets harder to cover numbers the longer you play. It's pretty fun though. We had several families stay to play for a while.
